(assuming with LUN you mean physical disk resource in the cluster)

No, they need to be in there own dedicated cluster group with dedicated
physical disk resources

Quorum disk should be, together with cluster IP and cluster name and
possibly MSDTC, in it own cluster group, this is the *default* setup. No
changes for the Quorum disk

So you end up with:

cluster group - cluster resources (including Quorum disk)
group1 - SQL2K (with its own dedicated disks, IP, network name)
group2 - SQL2K5 (with its own dedicated disks, IP, network name)

does this answer your question ?
