I have recently built a 2 node SQL 2008 R2 cluster which is running well with a named instance. I had intended on having 3 instances running on this however when I try to install the second instance I get an error stating that there is no shared drive available.
On further reading it appears I may need to add a new disk resource to support the second instance? I just want to confirm if this is the case as I can't actually find any decent documentation to prove or disprove this.

You can confirm that in the following article:
“A combination of one or more disks in a Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS) cluster group, also known as a resource group. Each resource group can contain at most one instance of SQL Server.”
Hope this helps.
