    Hi - I have a few questions:
    1) Do you know what is the best SQL Server 2005 Cluster installation document?
    2) Windows 2003 Server Enterprise x64 Edition: Can I install SQL Server 2005 Standard edition, to create a SQL Server 2005 cluster?
    3) To install SQL Server on a clustered (2 node) system: Can you copy the software onto the physical machines (i.e. C drive) and run the installations from there?
    4) What is the latest service pack for SQL Server 2005?
    Thanks!
