Different SQL Versions on the same server.

Multiple SQL Server Installations
SQL Server 2000
SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition
SQL Server 2008
I was hoping someone could tell me if its ok to install SQL2008 Standard for use with company accounting and billing applications and also install SQL2008 Express for use with Sharepoint 3.0 on the same server. I could put the versions of SQL on different volumes if that helps. The load Sharepoint puts on the server will be minimal as its not a big company and the server in question should have plenty of resources. Server 2008 Standard, 2 quad-core processors, 16 GB RAM. This server will run nothing but SQL and possibly printers in the future but no AD or other DB programs.
