Can mySQL and MSSQL coexist on the same server peacefully?

Dumb question and i should know the answer - can you have multiple 
DBMSes running at the same time on the same server? (I would think yes 
with possibly the proviso that they are listening on different ports?)

I'm doing a project for someone who has a co-located windows box that 
runs multiple sites using IIS and MSSQL but we're looking at installing 
a new web app that requires mySQL. Can we keep the existing site on the 
IIS+MSSQL and have it peacefully coexist with IIS+mySQL?

Any help would be appreciated
