Actually no. There is nothing special to configure on slave. Just install
as many VS versions as you need.

I'm using VSxxCOMNTOOLS environment variable to calculate path to visual
studio compiler. It's added by VS installer. So on master you should just
choose which MSVC version to use for particular builder.

	addStep(MSVC(commToolsName = "VS90COMNTOOLS", ...)) -- for VS2008
	addStep(MSVC(commToolsName = "VS71COMNTOOLS", ...)) -- for VS2003

As I said, this don't require any manual changes on slave. Just unpatched
slave. Environment variables will be added by MSVC installer

WBR, Dmitry
