How do I install Diskeeper 2008 Home Server Edition?

Windows Home Server is a new kind of server for the home. I have used it extensively and I believe Microsoft may have a hit with this very cool idea. Many vendors are also catching on and creating software that is compatible.

Bookmarked! Thanks for the clear instructions, it will be helpful for me in the near future. I don't have a WHS system yet, but will be getting one a couple of months down the line (need to finance some lenses for my DLSR first lol). I definitely intend to install Diskeeper for overseeing the disks, because I use their desktop editions on my Vista and XP Pro SP3 machines, and the software is awesome.
