That article was written using SQL 2008, so yes.

By default it's located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Binn

but it depends on your installation. Have a look there first.

Talk us through what you've done so far.

So: have you opened a command prompt window and navigated to the location of the BINN folder for your 2008 instance?

If you have, please post the syntax you are using to try to start the 2008 instance.
