Installing backup exec in an exisiting SQL enviroment

I want to install Backup Exec on an existing server as a new install.  This server houses an SQL server w/our warehouse management database.

Backup Exec gives me two options.  One is to let it install MSDE or to use an existing instance of SQL server.  I am not sure which to choose.  I would ideally like to not have to install MSDE and use my existing SQL server but I am afraid Backup Exec will over write what is already there.

I am looking for recommendations on how to proceed with the install.   Thanks.....

If you choose to use your existing SQL install then BE will not overwrite what's alreday in there

It will simply create a new instance and put a new DB in there
