    Simple edit the CustomSettings file for each service and change the "DatabaseServer", "DatabaseInstance" and "DatabaseName" according to the 2 existing databases.

    Well .. create the first service as you're used to (install, config, ...)
    But create the second with a command like this:
    sc \\MYSERVERNAME create MicrosoftDynamicsNAVServer$NAV2009SP1_BE_DEFAULTDB binpath= "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\60\Service NAV2009SP1_BE_DEFAULTDB\Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Server.exe $NAV2009SP1_BE_DEFAULTDB" DisplayName= "Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server NAV2009SP1_BE_DEFAULTDB" start= auto type= own

    hope it's useful...
