PostgreSQL has worked fine with the 2 node MS failover cluster since
the first native version on Windows, which was 8.0. You need no extra
software, and yo udon't need PostgreSQL 9.0 for it.

I share Simons recommentation that you *should* use PostgreSQL 9.0 or
9.1 though ;) And it also gives you other ways to build the
availability solution than the MS cluster one.
