    you can install two copies, or use 1 copy with two configuration files. The Listen directive controls which interface each server uses.

    You can install single instance of IHS and have two separate CONF file. Note: you probably need to configure different ports in each file, or if you are using name base hosting, you can define virtual hosts in separate configration file. There are two types of Virtual Hosts which can be configured in IHS (like you can in Apache): Name-based virtual hosts and IP-based virtual hosts...hope all works out.
