The peerid is generated by the "tahoe create-client" command (which  
is, confusingly, also the command to create a server).  The nodeid is  
stored in "private/storage.furl" and in "my_nodeid".  See docs/ 
configuration.txt for details about those files: http://allmydata.org/ 
trac/tahoe/browser/docs/configuration.txt .

So the easiest solution is that if you want to create a second  
client, run the "tahoe create-client" command a second time and it  
will generate a new nodeid.  Don't copy an existing .tahoe directory  
as a way to create a second client.
