You can install side by side. I personally would not recommend it. But I understand budget constraints and other factors may push you towards side by side installations. I suggest you look at this page from TecNet > **How to: Upgrade a SQL Server Failover Cluster Instance** > > http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191295(v=sql.105).aspx

Huge +1 on not installing side-by-side in clustered environments. Heck, I'd avoid side-by-side in any environment.
