More than one website with each having it’s own database?
Its definitely possibly to have multiple stores running off the one instillation, i\’m not 100% sure about the separate databases but to be honest i\’m not sure its necessary - Megento does a pretty good job of separating them with most items/configurable options able to be split between the two stores, there is a running post about setting up multiple stores.
