Install VS2003 after VS2005?

P: n/a

I've been given a project to maintain but it's in 2003 and might be
hard to update to 2005 - I tried converting and got a fairly large
number of errors. I'm in the process of wiping a machine and opening
the app there with just a clean 2003 so I can see what errors are not
due to conversion, but it's an old and slow machine and I'd rather do
the work on my main machine. So, can I install VS2003 after already
having 2005 installed? 2005 is professional edition and 2003 is
enterprise.

Having done 2003 to 2005 upgrades myself recently, I've read that both
can exist on the same machine no problem, especially for web server
application upgrades and so on. As far as the order of installation
is concerned, I'm not sure if you have to do 2003 first or not. I
would think it wouldn't matter.
