		   Are you talking about client-side debugging or server-side debugging?  The latter should be established once you start your application in debug mode, but the former happens after the browser has already loaded the first page.  You can use the current instance of VS if you like, though I suppose it might have trouble tracking two different processes at a time...

I just found your awesome site and downloaded IE6 hoping to be able to 
use it on my system with IE7 when I need to debug javascript in VS 2005. 
(VS 2005 and IE7 don't play very nicely together for debugging 
javascript, a known problem thats still not fixed!) I downloaded ie6 
from the Standalone IEs for Windows 
archive and copied it 
to its own directory and set it as the browser for VS to use. But when I 
try using the debug IE6 asks if I want to start a new instance of VS to 
debug. Anyone know how I can get IE6 to use the instance of VS 2005 that 
started the browser?

Would it be better to only have ie6? if so how do I remove ie7 and 
install ie6 in its place?

Thanks for the help!
