Trying to create an Vmware NFS datastore from an NFS share on Server 2008.

I've read a lot of conflicting, or confusing information.  Some questions to clear this up:

1.  Does domain functional level have to be 2008 and above?
2.  Does the NFS share have to be on a domain controller?
3.  Do any roles on the domain controllers have to be installed?  Something for Unix functionality?

I have Server 2008, not R2.  Domain functional level is 2003.  Hoping to move this up soon.
Running vsphere 5 and esxi 5.  

If anybody has gotten this to work, please help me out.  Thanks!
