1) The installers are designed to work on single-instance installs or 
upgrades.

2) You only need one install to run multiple copies of the same release. 
The trick is to configure the necessary parts to be unique values 
between the instances

3) Each instance needs its own copy of unique data. No two active 
instances can share data.

4) The list of other items that must be unique per instance is listed here:

5) (mailing list rule) - avoid hijacking other threads

6) (general support advice) - when having a problem, try to provide 
descriptive details regarding what you are trying to do, any commands 
you are using, and what types of failures you are encountering 
(including any error messages you are receiving). This usually allows 
anyone trying to help you to respond in a more focused and less general 
way.
