[isalist] Install of TMG on 2K8 R2

Hello all, I have a couple of servers with TMG on it and was trying to install 
another one to make it part of an existing array.

First of all, on ISA 2006 if my memory is not that bad, there was an option to 
install and while installing choose if that box was going to be part of an 
array, so we could pick the CSS then which array you wanted to join (or created 
a new one), etc.....
On TMG I found the only option to be: Installed as an stand alone TMG server 
and then from the console choose to join an existing array. If I'm wrong on 
that please anybody let me know. But besides that, I tried to install this 
particular TMG server 3 times already and before reinstalling the entire OS I 
wanted to ask for help.

Every time I'm running the installation, when the wizard is on "Additional 
Components (Estimated........)" the installation fail with this error:


-          Microsoft SQL Express 2008 (reporting instance could not be 
installed). As a result, Forefront TMG installation cannot be completed.

Any help will be appreciated.
