The nightmare has happened...  The passive node of a 2-node Active/Passive
SQL2K5 cluster had a critical drive failure and there is no recovery disk or
backup to restore from.  At this moment only the Active node is running (and
running fine).  I have a server with a clean OS install which I can use to
replace the failed Passive node but am unsure how to go about this.  I have
not touched any of the current cluster settings/definitions.  Any help is
greatly appreciated.

TIA.
