multiple Reporting Services servers or instances???

We have SQL 2005 server with RS already installed and being used by an app (Noetix if it matters) and now we have another app that needs to use RS.  

I ran into this before when my manager wanted Team Foundation Server installed and I found that even if I installed RS on another server and used a different database, it still clobbered the original reporting config on the SQL server.

I'm just a sysadmin and don't know what I'm talking about so be gentle. ;)

is there some way that we can have 2 different apps that need RS hosted on the same SQL server without them using the same RS instance (if that's the right term)?

Sure, you can have SSRS running on multiple servers too.

Yes, you can have multiple instances of SSRS on the same server.  This MS link talks about how to do it.

thanks for the link!

The article mentions having multiple instances on the same SQL server, so I'm wondering if I can have RS installed on the SQL server using one instance and another instance running from RS on a separate server?

Thanks for the help.  I had some issues with it not allowing me to view the /reports webpage but it, apparently, needed time after installatio to complete.  I was getting various errors after installation but the next day another admin checked and it was working.
