It may be possible to run as a virtual server but it appears that I
would have to do a bunch of mucking around since it is supposed to run
under a different user id.

I am trying to figure out how to run multiple httpd.conf and haven't had
much success either by creating /etc/sysconfig/httpd...
# cat /etc/sysconfig/httpd
# multiple configs
OPTIONS="-f /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf \
-f /opt/CA/BrightStorARCserve/httpd/conf/httpd.conf"

OPTIONS="-f /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf \

and I also tried 
cp /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd-bab
and changing pid and /var/lock/subsys and conf references but it won't


so I'm pretty much where I started
