1) Are there any useful SQL scripts to list remaining space, autogrow type settings on a SQL instance on 2008 SQL Server? as a general capacity monitoring and configuraiton script? what exactly do you look for here?

2) Are there any free tools to identify performance issues and probable root causes on SQL Server 2008, ie highlight where performance issues are coming from/the misconfiguration causing the performance issues?

For monitoring I would look at Confio's  Ignite Free. I would setup a different server/workstation to run it to monitor the production server(s). It can run on SQL Express though. It doesn't have all the alerts in the free version, but it allows for tracking the "hot" spots.
