Where are documents that are uploaded stored in SharePoint?  Are they stored in the SQL database or on the web server?  What's the best place to install SharePoint?  What's the best way to install Sharepoint on a server that already has other web apps?

Wrong key...sorry
-  Data is stored in sql - desktop version. I would use standard edition of sql if you can afford it.
- I preffer stripe 5 but in general you should keep it away from system partition.
- It all depends on your current web apps - I didn't see much problem with that, but on other hand I don't have that much experience in that kind of configuration.

We recently installed Sharepoing on our BDC. All the files are kept within an SQL database (desktop version). As for installing it, we just went through and accepted all the defaults.

When you say web apps, are any of them visable from typing in http://<servername>?

By default sharepoint installs the web interface in the default web folder.  If any other web app is in the default site it will no longer work.  I know you can exclude files or directories from sharepoint so you can still get to them but I rather have sharepoint installed on a separate site.  I guess my real question would be what is the best way to install sharepoint on a separate site?

Probably the easiest is to add an additional IP address to your server, create a new Web Site called Sharepoint that only listens on the new IP address. Update your DNS to have the name SharePoint point to the new IP address. Extend the http://SharePoint server and your done.

Your existing web sites on the original IP address are left intact and your new SharePoint site is available also.

Hope this helps.
