Hey experts,

 I have an SQL Server 2008 named instance installed a Windows Server 2008 machine, and I want to install another named instance on that same server so I can have more control, but I couldn't find anywhere online how to do that; any help on doing it?

Note: The one installed is SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition (64-bit)

Thanks deepakChauhan! That did the trick! So turns out installing a second named instance is the same as installing a first named instance (I had thought it should be different).
