I currently have a 2 node A/P SQL 2008 Cluster running once instance on Server 2008 Ent. I have 3 disks that have been allocated for the instance (Data, Logs, Backups) I would like to add an additional instance to the cluster and utilize the same disks. Is this possible. I have tested this and noticed that once you have disks allocated in the Failover Cluster Manager. There is no way to allocate those same disks to a different resource? Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

with clustering, each instance must have it's own resources.
so, you cannot share multiple instances with the same resources.

instead, you must  either put the database(s) into the same instance, or instead get more disk to be cluster resourced.
