Each instance of multichaind connects to a single chain, but you can have any number of multichaind instances running in parallel on the same server, subject of course to that server's limitations. You can expect an idle instance of multichaind to take less than 64 MB of memory and 1% of a modern CPU core, so if you have lots of quiet networks, you can connect to hundreds of them on a powerful enough server.
