Run SQL 2000 and SQL 2005 instances at the same time

Can you run SQL 2000 and SQL 2005 instances on the same server? Are there any problems associated with the two instances running together?

Yes, they run together. The only issue I've seen is where 2k is installed after 2k5, there have been some issues with shared dll's being replaced by older ones. Installing another instance of 2k5 seems to have always fixed that.
