Currently, I have websites running on my server using SQL Server 2000 as their database.

Can I install and run SQL Server 2005 on this same server so that both versions of SQL Server run at the same time?  Is this possible?

OR would it be better if I just converted the SQL Server 2000 databases over to SQL Server 2005?


Thanks in advance,

Hammer
