My, you're in a nitpicking mood today.
First, URL-encoded HTTP header values, now this..

OP, just for the sake of absolute correctness, Chris is right. 
Remember, for the future, that you /could/ give your host two different 
IP addresses, and two different corresponding DNS hostnames, and that 
this would allow you to run two different Tomcats listening on the same 
ports on the same physical host.
You could also of course install an Apache httpd in front of your 
Tomcats, and through the judicious use of connectors and/or proxying and 
URL rewriting rules, even manage to have the two different Tomcats 
/appear/ to respond on the very same port and IP address, while in 
reality they wouldn't.

But since by now you already have two proposed setups, one based on the 
zip version and the other on the exe installer, let's keep things simple 
and practical for now, shall we ?
