comment Registering a new instance of SQL Server 2005 without affecting the current instance
Correct. You can install a new instance of SQL Server and it will not interfere with your default instance. You can even install a different version of SQL Server (2008 R2 for example), and assuming all the pre-requisites are in place you'll be fine.

You absolutally 10000000000% need to run the installation process to register a new instance. Otherwise what are you connecting to? Take it from someone who's been doing it for years! This way you can mix SQL versions and flavours.

comment What software should I use for CVS server?
Well, that depends on which side of the fence you sit. Getting shitty won't get you any more/better responses.

comment What software should I use for CVS server?
I doubt it. We had CVSNT in production until 18 months ago. Your situation is unfortunate that you can't migrate away, because VC systems have come a long way since CVS (as I'm sure you know).

comment How to divide internet after installing PFsense in VM
You will need to make sure that the LAN address is on the same subnet as the rest of your network, and your WAN address needs to be on a different subnet. This also ensures that users can't just bypass the pfsense by entering the IP of the router into their gateway.

comment Nightly system reimaging options
WDS is also good because it will pre-auth a MAC address and once a unique name has been assigned to it it will keep that name every time the image is re-deployed, saving you from having to have a custom image for every machine

Not a problem. If I had to set up a *nix network I'm sure I would be in a much larger state of confusion than you are!

comment How to divide internet after installing PFsense in VM
What you need to do is point your Default Gateway for the client machines to point to the LAN IP address of the PFSense box.

comment Can i see how much internet data has been download by user if i use Active directory
Hmm, to be honest I think this discusison has probably gone more complex than commenting will allow to make sense of, what I recommend is just downloading it, installing it in a VM with two network cards, and when you get stuck, read the PFSense manual or failing that, ask a question here. PFSense is easy to set up and it will give you the option to assign the WAN and LAN interfaces when you first set it up

It might be best if you move the modem/router onto a different subnet (if it's 192.168.0.1, move it to 192.168.1.1) or else you will run into routing issues on the PFSense box, because it will try to route traffic out through the LAN interface as well.

What you will need to do is give your VM two virtual network cards. They can both be assigned to the same physical card if you like. What you do then is assign one virtual adapter to be your WAN, and one to be your LAN. It will then route traffic in and out of the same physical card, but because the VM has two nics it can log the traffic between them. Then you need to point all of your Default Gateways to the PFSense VM.

comment 5-10tb of data transfer required, on the cheap
Interesting. Always check the fine print of the service agreement, and check to see if they guarantee a minimum bandwidth, because a service that is jerky and unwatchable is arguably worse than no service at all

No. PFSense is a dedicated FreeBSD distribution. What you COULD do, is install Hyper-V or VMWare Server and deploy PFSense into that. But as ErikA mentioned, it will only collect statistics for traffic that comes through a web browser, not torrent, newsgroups, P2P, etc
