ColdFusion developers, go forth and multiply!! ...your servers that is.

Post feedback if you find any errors or confusion with the steps. I had one other person test this and I included his feedback (thanks Darren!). WindowsXP & Vista only, sorry Mac'ers.
By the way, because of the extreme limitations of the Adobe license model I have recently been exploring use of Open BlueDragon on EC2. I was able to port my AWS Console project onto BlueDragon with no tweaks whatsoever, so I am very impressed. Worth checking out (along with Ralio 3.0). For a while I thought I MUST use Adobe's ColdFusion product because of its built-in clustering and all that jazz, but turns out there are plenty of non-CF-cluster ways to build intelligent load balancing and fail-over on EC2. Scalr is one of them. RightScale is another if you want to pay.
While traditional hosting is not yet dead, it certainly has one foot in the grave, and I hope for Adobe's sake they can transform their CFML product to take advantage of cloud computing because otherwise these projects like BD, Ralio and Smith Project will be the only alternative to CF. Why do I care? I guess because 1) I have worked with CF for 11 years and feel loyal to Adobe, 2) Adobe CF is still an incredible product and I wish I could use it in production on EC2 but lack of a utility compute model means I won't.
