When you start snort, you need to tell it what interface to use and what 
conf file to use.

If you're going to run two instances of snort on the same box with two 
interfaces, then you'd do something like this:

snort -i eth0 -c /etc/snort1.conf -D
snort -i eht1 -c /etc/snort2.conf -D

Each conf file would point to a separate database.

(Use whatever other switches you need.  For more information on what's 
available, run snort --help from the commandline.  You may have to pipe it 
through a pager to see everything - snort --help | less, for example.)
