I have a 3-node Win2003 ENT R2 / SP2 cluster hosting 3 named instances
of SQL2000. Two nodes are active (2 instances on one node, 1 instance on
the other) while the third node is passive.

I'm interested in doing some testing of SQL2005 in a cluster environment
(we know our DB & App work fine in stand-alone). Can a SQL2005 instance
be installed on a cluster without botching the existing SQL2000 instances?
