Installing SQL Server 2005 & SQL Server 2000 on the same machine?

Hi All,

I've installed SQL Server 2000 on my development machine, but would like to install SQL Server 2005 on the same machine without upgrading. Is it possible? I need to keep SQL Server 2000 for my existing production databases. Any one know the solutions? or any article?

Yes, provided they are the same license types. I used to have SQL
Server 2000 Enterprise Edition on my machine. When I tried to install
SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition I got some kind of license conflict
error. I had to deinstall 2000 before I could install 2005.

SQL Server 2005 Installation problems with SQL Server Express & SQL Server 2000
Hi Guys, I have had SQL Server Express and Sql Server Management Studio Express installed on my machine for some time and recently tried to install a trial of SQL Server 2005 as well.  (Yes, I'm migrating from Visual Studio Express to Visual Studio Professional, just as in tended!)
