SQL SSIS

I have two servers, one that has my datawarehouses broken into three SQL instances.  The other has SSRS, names the same as the three instances.  The SSRS report databases are also on the first server.

My second server only has SSRS.  I need to enable SSIS to do ETL for all three instances.

Question: Should I put SSIS on the SSRS server or my database server.

Question:  Can each instance (three) have its own SSIS so I can to ETL for each one.

Thanks

Q1. I've always installed SSIS on the Database server, I don't see really any reason to separate them, never any issues.

Q2. I'm not sure on this part of the question.

What I have learned myself.  Although I had created 3 SQL instances on my database engine, SSIS defaults to the default instance (which I did not have).  You can change the location to one of your instances by going to regeditor and checking for correct path, the following instructions here:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dataaccesstechnologies/archive/2009/11/13/ssis-error-failed-to-retrieve-data-for-this-request-reasons-and-resolutions.aspx

Now I have to figure out if my SSIS packages for my different instances will still run if SSIS is installed on only one of my instances. I don't think it matters because it is looking at a system database.. but we shall see.  Anyone know anything more than this?
