I'm not sure if there are any howto's around for this, most likely there is 
but the way I do it to simplify matters is just to copy the whole tomcat 
directory and then change various ports in server.xml (I'm at home so I 
haven't got the list in front of me).

Then if you wish to install NT services (are you using Windows) there is a GUI 
tool available that makes this nice and easy, search the archives and you 
should find it easy enough. If you are using linux you should be right if you 
just run ./ from each directory, same with windows if you don't 
want to install a service, just run the startup.bat file.

You can set it up so you share some of the core of Tomcat but I prefer not to 
complicate matters as Tomcat isn't huge so there is no real overhead in just 
keeping multiple copies of the binary.
