They will reside on the same server fine. If you want everything to use port
80 though, you will need to disable socket pooling since IIS binds to every
port 80 by default.
IIS6: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813368/EN-US/
IIS5: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;238131

One thing to note is that after disabling socket pooling and you add another
IP address with httpcfg, you'll need to restart the IIS services to actually
be able to use the address. That's the only issue I ever ran into. I've had
no problems with Apache, it is an excellent piece of software. If you want
to authenticate against Active Directory easily, then doing it through
Apache is the way to go. SSL is also much easier to implement on Apache than
on IIS in my experience. It won't hurt you to learn something new. I
survived ;)

Yea, the only problem is Apache. I've already have IIS on my server, not
sure they can live together or not. I want to use SVN, so I can learn. But
SVN forces me to learn Apache, which I don't think I am going to use it in
any other way but SVN, kindof a waste.

If SVN server can provide decent security configuration, it will be a killer
app.

I've been using SVN on win32 for about 18 months. The security features are
easy
to understand:

========
[/trunk]
john = rw
calvin = r
========

How difficult can that be?? Hopefully in time these permissions will be
embedded
in the repos itself, and will be enforced through all connection types.

The requirement for Apache on a windows box is less ideal when you are
running
IIS, but you'll grow to love Apache, and its easy configuration. It has a
proper
configuration file instead of loads of junk in the registry!!

Transparent config files are something Microsoft is (sloooowwwly!)
rediscovering
with .NET etc. Given a decade IIS will probably work much like Apache does
now... only it will take up 4 times the memory ;)
