    One in a subdomain and one on main? Would any issues arise?

    I think the proper term is "WordPressii." ;)
    Yes it's completely possible. You can even have them in the same database, just give them different table prefixes in the wp-config.php file.

    Actually I have found that logging in with one browser is an issue. Something to do with cookies. I have solved the problem momentarily by using 2 different browsers, one for each blog. I know that this will be fixed in the next beta release, though. :)

    This should have been fixed in the latest CVS release. Were you using this or just the SourceForge download?

    .72gold. me don't try the CVS versions. I had rather wait for the final product. :)

    If you have the second WP on a subdomain you should be able to avoid the cookie bug in .72.

    yep true. subdomains are treated as seperate websites. my 2 blogs were on the same server different directories...

    Right. The cookie issue comes into play when you have two WP installs under the same subdomain, and one is installed in a subdirectory of the other. This is fixed in CVS. But it shouldn't be a problem if each install is in a separate subdomain, or if they are installed in sibling directories (e.g. '/root/wp1' and '/root/wp2').
