NLB with a PowerConnect 5324

I've been perusing the forums here and I am still not sure what the consensus is regarding NLB (Network Load Balancing) and the Dell PowerConnect 5324 switch.

My question is this: I want to place two Dell PowerEdge servers in a NLB array using Microsoft's Network Load Balancing.

The functionality that I am looking for is for the two 5324 ports to send the same data to the virtual IP's MAC address so that the NLB algorithm can process the request.

In addition, what is the procedure(s) to get two ports to forward the same frame to both ports participating in the NLB array?
