Installing FSX in a Separate Folder or Instal OVER FS2004

Where disc space is a consideration (as it is for me) - will I be able to install FSX OVER FS2004 or will it require a separate folder leaving all the FS2004 material intact?
MS doesn't give any advice on this.
Anyone know one way or the other for sure ?

FSX will install it self in its own folder (Microsoft Games)
The demo version runs in at just under 2 gigs on the harddrive but the full retail version is huge

Historically, MS has always installed new versions in their own folders, It has always permitted more than one FS version. If you don't have the space, uninstall the old version and then install the new. one.
