Your first option should be:

	Can I run the same RT2 installation, and just have different queue
	names (with corresponding changes to the submission address) ?

Note that in such a setup, you will share the same ticket number space
(not really a problem, but the tag ($rtname) will be the same in both
cases.  If you want a different tag for each queue, you can hack the code,
or effectively have two seperate installations.)

If you want to run seperate RT2 databases, then I'd suggest installing RT2
into /usr/local/rt2, then create two seperate config files, as per:


You then need to create two seperate Virtualhost directives, changing
/usr/local/rt2/etc to /usr/local/rt2/etc/{tpc,hylafax} as appropriate.
Finally, create /usr/local/rt2/bin/{tpc,hylafax}-webmux.pl from
/usr/local/rt2/bin/webmux.pl, changing the lib directories within as

Repeat the excercise for /usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate.  Presto - two
installations sharing the RT libraries.  Or you could just symlink away ;)
