NetBackup 6.5.4 Master Server Cluster on a Windows 2008 Server Failover cluster

Is it possible to create a NetBackup 6.5.4 Master Server Cluster on a 64-bit Windows 2008 Server Failover Cluster?  I can find information on NetBackup supporting 2000 and 2003 MSCS clusters and I know that NetBackup 6.5.4 allows for 64-bit Windows 2008 Master Servers.  I need to know specifically if NetBackup 6.5.4 will support 2008 clustering.
