Adding nodes to a cluster

I currently have a single node cluster (with a 2nd node to be added when hardware is available). I wanted to add SQL Backup asap to get my log shipping going, but I was hesitant to install it without the 2nd node in the cluster. Is there an easy way to push SQL Backup to the 2nd node when it's joined to the cluster? Should I just wait for the 2nd node to do the install?

Thanks - Jeremy.

    You can always install SQL Backup on the single node for now. When the 2nd node is available, the options are to:

    - install SQL Backup manually on the 2nd node, as per the instructions here

    - uninstall and reinstall SQL Backup, choosing the cluster install option
