You can do it though not without some handiwork. From the top of my
head, you should:

1) Copy FB installation
2) Remove all FB-related keys from registry
3) Edit firebird.conf for both instances and
3.1) Change listening port
3.2) Restrict database path to different locations
3.3) Change name of named pipe
3.4) Change IPCName
3.5) Set CreateInternalWindow to 0
4) Run FB servers as applications or manually rename service
5) Not use guardian

After this you should get two independent firebird servers running
on the same computer.
