can we run 2 or more IIS 7 server with in a Server Farm

we have already running a IIS7 on a Server for general service like FTP.

and now we are deploying WSS 3.0

do we need to run a separate IIS7? or use existing one?
or

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use 1 server with IIS for multiple sites. If you wish to have redundancy then you can install and configure more servers. For "clustering" use NLB (Network Load Balancing" to configure IIS cluster. NLB is available in Windows Server Manager's Features.
