InstallingSQL 2008 Client Tools

Hi I currently have SQL 2005 the full installation installed on my machine. I would like to install SQL Server 2008 client tools on my machine.
1. Will SQL Server 2005 and 2008 client tools co-exist on the same machine?
2. Please can you send me a link for SQL Server 2008 client tools only.

Thanks

Hi

I have SQL 2000, sql 2005 and SQL 2008 on the same machine (Server & client tools)

and i have VB 6, VS.net 2003 Vs 2005 and VS 2008 all working fine

it happened to me once that web apps developed with vs.net 2003, i was unable to debug. and i fixed it.
