Run Server 2008 R2 on VMware 3.0.1

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We have an older VMware server at a remote site still running 3.0.1. Server 2008 isn't listed as a "supported" operating system in the drop down list when you create a new VM. Does anyone know if it will actually run if I try to install it on there? I'd like to do 63bit but I guess 32 would be fine. It's just going to be a domain controller.
