    The download is also 900MB, so expect it to take some time to download.

    Still we can't install SQL Server 2008 in a server where SQL Serve 2005 available with out breaking SQL Server 2005. Can we?

    As suggested here it is better to use on a virtual server image than spoiling the good working instance.

    On of my friend told me you can't install SSMS 2008 on a machine which has SSMS 2005 :)

    Yes you can and I did, but with first CTP as for this one too there is no uninstall facility or clean uninstall to perform. Always better to use virtual image that will not disturb current working environment.
    You can have a 50gb space for the virtual image in this case.
