Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 3 - Teaming Dual NICS in server 2008

I was looking to team two broadcom NICs on a new 2008 server.  From what I've found, MS has removed the ability to team NICs.  Oddly, I swear I have multiple NICs teamed under 2008 (I think these are Intel NICs, though).  Can anyone confirm if teaming has been removed?

NIC teaming is usually done through some kind of management software.  Windows really never had an inherent tool to do it for you.  the OS has nothing to do with it.  if your NICS have a intel utility, then you can team them.  If not, you can usually get it form the server manufacturer's website.

Yeah, I'm using the Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 3 - I've used this to team NICs before (possibly only on my 2k3 servers).  The documentation  does mention teaming, but the options are NOT there.  I saw a thread recently where someone mentioned that Teaming is not supported by MS so broadcom removed this from the software for 2008.  I'm looking to see if this actually true.
