How do I setup a Active Active SQL Cluster in Windows 2008 server

Hi ,
I have set up three virtual servers(Windows 2008 enterprise Edition) with fail over clustering feature installed and the cluster is also created by adding the three servers as three nodes..Now I would like to know the steps to create ACTIVE/ACTIVE SQL cluster ..(I have already implemented the Active /Passive set up for sql and is working fine)....

Please help

Active/Active means nothing but installing another instance of SQL on to the same nodes, 1 node will be active for instance1 and another node will be active for instance 2. Follow the same procedure as if yo were installing it again and this time install SQL with a named instance.

May be in your case, you need to setup three instances of SQL so that each node can be active for each instance.
