You need to use different CATALINA_BASE variables for the different 
instances. It's badly documented (in my opinion), but you can try here:

And read the comments in (or catalina.bat)

Basically, you need to set CATALINA_BASE to a directory that contains 
directories called conf, logs, temp, and webapps. A work directory will 
be created there as well. You can have several of these.
The bin, common, server, and shared directories should all be in the 
directory that CATALINA_HOME points to. You need only one of these.

Then make sure your different tomcats don't try to bind to the same 
ports, and you're away.
