Is it possible to run SQL Server 6.5 and 2000 on the same server?

I know running both versions (6.5 and 2000) is not a recommended approach,
but is it possible?

Thanks,

yes, but not at the same time.  there is a switch utility that allows to
move between versions.

Kevin,

You can run SQL Server 6.5 and as many **named** instances of SQL Server
2000 as you want on the same server. BTW, Microsoft only supports a total of
16 named instances of SQL Server 2000 on a single server, but there own
internal testing has not found a problem running considerably more named
instances.

Check out the section "Multiple Instances of SQL Server"
(architec.chm::/8_ar_cs_9i5u.htm) in the SQL Server 2000 Books Online for
additional information.
