go to /etc/httpd/conf
edit httpd.conf (by hand) - real men don't use gui's! :)
look for the entry <VirtualHost>:
Here, you should add a VirtualHost for each site you want to host in the
now go into /var/www and create a directory for each of the domains.. and
go for it..

also look in the ISP-Setup-RedHat-HOWTO.
