SQL server 2005 and SQL server 2008can we install both sql 2005 and sql 2008 on the same box.
yes you can
The first instance has the default name , the next one have a new named instance.
but only you install one SSMS tool , so you should install SSMS 2008 to connect to both 2005,2008
oh so that mean you cant have two ssms out there? but you have two engines.
