Can the IS2011 Pro evaluation be installed on a system that already has IS2008 installed without messing it up, OR can only one version of InstallShield be installed at a time? I want to evaluate 2011, but don't want to mess up my working 2008 install.

Yes, multiple versions of InstallShield (for the past several releases) can be installed on the same system.

Is that still true, even with this statement about IS2011? So, only one copy of 2011 at one time, but I can have 2011 and 2008 at the same time?

Installing More than One Edition of InstallShield
Only one edition of InstallShield 2011—Premier, Professional, or Express—can be installed on a system at a time. Previously, it was possible to install the Express edition on the same system that had the Premier or Professional edition of the same InstallShield version.

Correct---only one copy of the same version can be on a system, but multiple different versions are fine.
