I see it is supported.

As Robert's blog sorta hints at, this is really *NOT* a good idea. It is very fragile, breaks with updates (regularly), and also permanently breaks some of the SBS integration peices. But, if you should choose to do so, the documents connectex provided are the way to go.

I've installed it but I haven't run the wizard. I'm nervous to do so as all info points to it being a bad idea.
