db2 multiple instances in a single host



os - windows 2008 db - db2 9.1 fp7

if i want to install 2 sap instances in a single machine in windows how to proceed?

1) I have read the documents where installation doc saying default db s/w path is /db2/db2sid/ this the s/w path in windows? some where i read it saying default path is drive:/program files/IBM/sqllib.what is actually the difference?

2) and also read in the forum and also in the note 978555 and 930487,it says multiple instance is not possible in db2 ie we can have only 1 defalut copy of db2 so we cant have multiple instances with the different copies of db2(up to kernel version 7.0) .is this correct? for 1st instance it is /db2/db2sid1/db2_software and for 2nd instance it is /db2/db2sid2/db2_software right?so how we cant have 2 instances with 2 different db2 copies?

pls expain me.
