Active/Passive should be pretty straight forward running "New SQL Server failover cluster installation" on one node and "Add node to a SQL Server failover cluster" on the other node. Below link is for SQL 2005 but for 2008 would be the same:

And this is a walkthrough for "SQL Server 2008 Active-Passive/Active-Active Cluster Installation":

I went throught those docs. But it won't show the process to put the IPs... Don't we need to incoporate the IP SQL CLuster install for the following:


Cluster name (OS cluster) - IP Addresss
Cluster name (SQL cluster) -  IP Addresss
Cluster name(MSDTC) -  IP Addresss
Cluster name(node 1) -  IP Addresss
Cluster name(heartbeat) -  IP Addresss
Cluster name  (node 2) -  IP Addresss
Cluster name (heartbeat) -  IP Addresss

Please provide me the full process to complete the Active/Passive node.

Maybe you should read/follow the steps provided by Microsoft - please search/download: SQLServer2008FailoverCluster.docx
and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd197457


Also very good detals including screen shots "SQL Server 2008 Active-Passive/Active-Active Cluster Installation":
http://sqldbpool.com/2009/10/07/sql-server-2008-active-passive-cluster-installation/


Basicaly the process is done through "Failover Cluster Management tool in Windows Server 2008" which is installed at least on one node and before SQL 2008 install.
