Hi Huslayer,

The link you posted above is helpful. Let me explain my requirement in bit more detail. I want to install Report Server 2008 R2 Software on one Server machine and Report Server Databases on a different Server Machine.

The reason to do this I want to shift processing of Report Server Software to a different computer Server from our organizational transactional server holding transactional databases and ReportServer databases i.e., ReportServe Databaser and ReportServerTempDB.

Note: The computer server where I want to keep reporting server software (Service) has IIS installed on it with windows 2003 server 32 bit OS. While SQL Server 2008 R2 on transactional server where Reporting Server databases are going to be kept have installed Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit operating system.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, just follow the steps, install only SSRS, not all the options, configure later when you install the database server.
Then on the database server, install SQL server, the engine only.

configure SSRS so it can point to the database server, and that's it...

follow the exact steps from this article, it'll show how to install only SSRS and configure it later, except you'll need to install it as a default instance, not added instance.

Yes, your current server setup is fine, a side note SSRS 2008 R2 or SSRS 2008 doesn't need IIS anymore, minimum hardware and software is listed here just for review also

Let me know if you need more help with the install.
