migrating wss3 to sharepoint foundation 2010 in a single server environment

I've looked around and have seen a lot of postings and i'm trying to get a clear direction.

I have a client in an installation with 20 users with a single 2008 r2 server environment. This server is the DC and is currently running wss3. The sharepoint environment isn't that complex, primarily plain lists with a few basic workflows and some custom forms that were made in sharepoint desinger.

I need to move them to sP2010 as I need to start utilizing some of its features such as field permissions and better workflows.

I started to perform the in place upgrade after running a clean stsadm precheck and the pre requisite instalation went fine.

When I went to install the actual sharepoint it told me that it can't run in stand alone mode on a DC.

I've seen various articles that say you really shouldn't put it on a DC but client doesn't really have resource for a server just for sharepoint.

What is the easiet way around this? Has anyone successfully acomplished this? What steps are involved?

Thank You.

That was my earlier question regarding problems passing the STSadm because of the DB sizes. that was resolved. Now I'm having the issue generaly of getting it to install.

I will say please have a VMware server, Virtual server or Virtual Box installed on your DC instead of directly installing it.

After that you can have a virtual server running on DC and install SharePoint 2010 on it.

Can I run Hper-v on a DC? Do  I need another 2008/12 license. I know 2012 allows you ro run to VM under a host on the same license. Does 2008? What would be the minimum memory processors I would need to allocate to sharepoint?
