|Subject:||Install New Instance/ Store Data & Log Files in existing drive|

I need to install a new instance of SQL Server 2000 on a cluster.
Currently, we have three instances. Each instances stores program files on
the E:\ Drive. Each instance has its own drive for data and another for
logs. However, there is no more unallocated space on the array to create
another partitioned drive.
My question is: If I create the new instance, can I store the data and log
files on an existing drive? Are there any performance or overhead costs that
should be considered?
