    Hi,
    I'm new to clustering so a couple of novice questions.
    1)Do I need to have windows 2003 in cluster mode prior to installing a 2 node sql2005 cluster or can the sql cluster be install on a generic windows2003 server?
    2)What are my hardware requirements for setting up a 2 node sql2005 cluster?
    Thanks for any help provided.
    Cheers

    you need windows 2003 cluster service be installed first, and tested successfully for fail over
    use Active/Passive cluster
    What are my hardware requirements for setting up a 2 node sql2005 cluster?
    two similar servers members of domain , with shared storage
    size the server and storage as load needed
