Is it possible to have both 2000 Reporting service and 2005 reporting service running on the same box?

I currently have SQL 2000 DB engine and SQL 2000 Reporting Services running on my development server as the default instance. We want to add SQL 2005 as a named instance (no issues here), but we would like to have BOTH 2000 and 2005 Reporting Services running (each pointing to its respective sql DB engine) so we can do separate testing.

Is this possible ? If so how?

Thanks for any help/enlightenment you can provide on the subject.

This is possible. Word of caution: .NET 2, which is installed by SQL2k5, may very well break some of your applications. Keep that in mind before you install it on the server.

Example: SQL Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) for SQL 2000 will no longer function if you install SQL 2K5 on the server due to .NET 2. BPA is an application that requires .NET 1.1.
