My question is I want to make sure the website is clustered with 2 node cluster.  I am in the high availablity wizard trying to decide which application to choose to configure this.  Because right now its a two node cluster with one quorum disk.  Is there a step by step guide on how to do this using clustering for windows server 08 enterprise? Not R2

Is there a reason you are trying a high availability cluster instead of a Windows Network Load Balancing cluster?

No reason.  I also have Cold Fusion installed which is connecting into a SQL server database.   I have not yet configured the SQL cluster but I want to be sure the front end portion is clustered as well.  You suggest using NLB cluster?

Yes, NLB is generally what is appropriate for web servers.

You can't install WNLB and HA clustering on the same servers (I tried), so you will beed to desrow your cluster and uninstall failover clustering before you can install WNLB.
