Well, if you specify the Rootdir on the command line, you shouldn't 
redefine it in the config file, just comment it out. Another option is 
to leave the Root dir the same and just put two different httpd.conf 
file in it and start two apache instances using the -c option to specify 
a different configuration file. At that point the Root dir could be the 
same but you have to specify a different Pid file name instead.
