I got the 2 server instances running but I had to change quite a few ports in the config-substitutions.properties file.  Why is it saying the ports are in use when the 2 servers instances are bound to different IP addresses? 
I have nothing running on this box except for the 2 instances of geronimo?  Is this a known issue?  Is there a way to fix this?

Any component listening on could be causing this....

Can you run "netstat -a" and see if any of the first server instance's
ports are still bound to and post the results?  It could just be
a simple matter of updating config.xml to override some default
configuration settings (and then fixing it with a JIRA for which ever
version of Geronimo you are using.)
