Can I install a windows 2003 fax client on a Windows 2008R2 Terminal server? If so, how?

I have installed a new 2008R2 terminal server and would like to install the 2003 fax server client from my fax server. I can get it to install but it hangs when I go to print faxes. If I use compatibility mode for install the install completes prematurely.

I don't believe Windows 2003 Fax Client is support on Windows 2008 Server R2

Ok...well lets add onto this. I installed the client and it errored out. So; I procured a compatible USR Fax Modem. Now when I go to Fax accounts...I have the old server name \\2003faxserver under accounts and if I click add..select modem...I get the prompt about receive mode but thats it...no modem gets installed. If I remove the referenced \\2003faxserver and try to add the locally installed modem again...I get a message that states an error occurred and to contact SA. I have R/R the fax server and print server role 2 times and still no luck. Any ideas anyone?

Sorry ; yes it was. I didnt receive the email that I had a response.  I finally was able to remedy the situation. Do not install the 2003 fax server client to a w2k8 box. It causes problems.
