Where to install Exchange on each node in a two node Exchange 2003 cluster?

Last Modified: 2011-09-20
I am about to install my first Exchange 2003 cluster.

I've read many articles out there from microsoft.com, msexchange.org, etc.

I've already got the server cluster installed and operating great, have the MSDTC resource working, and am now at the step of installing Exchange on each node.

However, I cannot find anywhere that someone states where to install on each node.  This step either says simply "Install Exchange on each Node" or "Make sure to install Exchange in the same location on each node"

But, I'm not sure whether to install on each node's C: drive, or on the E: drive shared cluster resource?  (switching it between the nodes to install)

Just trying to be cautious and have the answers before I proceed.
