I understand how to set up the two virtual hosts.

But how do I install two *packaged* request-tracker3 instances?

I can't do an "apt-get install request-tracker3" again--I've already got
one installed!

This is more a Debian packaging question than anything else... sure I
can get a fresh tarball and put it in /usr/local/, but a packaged
solution would be optimal.
