Installing a second database on the same server

We have a production database running. We want to install one more database running on the same server. How can I do this? Please explain in detail the procedure required for this.
The details to do this vary depending on your hardware platform. It is a little different on Unix/Linux and Windows. But to make it easier, just fire up the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) that was installed when you installed the Oracle software. On Unix/Linux, this utility is found in $ORACLE_HOME/bin. On Windows, there will be a shortcut somewhere under Start->Programs->Oracle. Fire up this utility and tell it you want to create a new database. It's that simple! Without this utility, the instructions get more complicated.
