I tried to install a new sql instance in an existing SQL 2008 standard environment and it failed. I looked in the install logs and there was an error saying the SQLServer2005SQLBrowserUser$<servername> group is missing. I take it that I can't just create this group myself? Is there any way to fix this besides backing up their existing SQL databases and reinstalling SQL?

Try adding the group SQLServer2005SQLBrowserUser$SERVERNAME and make it a member of administrators.
If you are trying to install SQL Server 2005 on a domain controller, then read the following article (Problem 4):
For more information about user groups created by SQL Server Setup, please see the following article:
Hope this helps.

This is SQL 2008 on a member server. I will try recreating the group.
