May be a crazy idea but worth a try.

First set up Win 2000 professional and find a Win 3.1 emulator that works
within it.  Once that's solid and running on Win 2000 box transplant the
physical Win 2000 server to virtual.  There are Win 2000 containers in
VMWare and VCloud Director type utilities that can be used, or you can do
it at the command prompt.  I used this technique to set up an XP box into a
cloud server that was running VMWare where you were allowed to spin up
