Default Multiple fluids

I have a heat exchanger system in which hot water exchanges heat with a blowing cold air (ex: radiator). How can I use FLUENT software to consider two seperate moving fluids i.e, two inlets and two outlets.

Version 4.x of FLUENT cannot do this, but 5.x can.

you definitely can have more than 1 fluid with more than 1 inlet & may try to specify the boundary conditions of your inlet & outlet by using gambit.However,if i'm not mistaken you may only specify a boundary condition to a cannot specify 2 or more boundary condition to a surface(e.g. you cannot specify velocity inlet & pressure inlet at the same face simultaneously)
