Are there any guides out there for running multiple instances of
snort on the same box?

I think there's a link from the snort.org documents, but you could
look at:
http://www.metaflows.com/technology/10-gbps-pf_ring-2/

In a nutshell -
1) Use PF_RING to load-balance the traffic between instances
2) Run multiple Snorts writing unified2 logfiles
3) Run mulitple instances of Barnyard2 to read the files if you want
to put them into a database

You could also look into SecurityOnion which I believe does all of the
above for you.
