i have a windows 2008 cluster. I am installing sql 2008. The installation files go to c drive on node 1.  All DB go to shared drive E:\

But on the other node there is no SQL installed... How can i have SQL installed on both nodes ? Should i had chosen the installation to be completed on the E:\  (shared) drive instead of c:\ ?

any help would be appreciated.

SQL has to installed on both nodes, the data, log and backup files can and should be stored on a shared disk in a cluster.
