Hi michelle,
as u seems like an absolute newbie, a detailed description is beyond the scoup of this message. You should study a bit before moving ahead, some sites may help you like www.linuxhomenetworking.com etc.
..
Regarding Servers... A server is only a service in Linux (or in other OS). So, you can have multiple services at the same point.

centos version 4 and RedHat enterprise 4 are the same thing. centos is a clone of redhat enterprise. the only difference is the logo. so does fedora.

you can read the howto create vhosts from apache website at:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/vhosts/examples.html

Not really an answer, just to get this clear: are you sure you need complete virtual servers (of the V-server / FreeVPS kind) as opposed to "regular" Apache Vhosts? Maybe you could elaborate on what you're trying to do?

I asked why: what do you need it for? You may think you need it because you do not know other solutions. In any case it would be preferable to first read the documentation here: http://www.freevps.com/docs/index.html, at least the Host Preparation, Installation and Kernel docs. The the kernel is here http://www.freevps.com/download/rpms/EL4/ and the VPS tools here http://www.freevps.com/download/freevps-tools/RH_EL4/.

I like to try using virtual server coz i don't like to buy another machine. Am i right in choosing virtual server for this? I know you're very good in here and im not that's why im asking for help politely.I already follow the instruction there. done installing the freevps and kernel. create a /vserver/. Another question is...what's next? i stop here.

I keep asking you about this because in your original post (OP) you said you where looking into vserver because you would like to serve a website from this machine. For that you don't need a different machine nor a vserver setup: you can install all the necessary tools and run a website *right now*.

Next you create a "context" which is how they call a "virtual server". Since FreeVPS basically is Vserver you could read http://linux-vserver.org/Building_Guest_Systems and substitute the 'vserver' command for your 'vserver_ctl'. Note the doc mentions five ways to build a guest and I don't know if FreeVPS caters for it. Also note that Psoft recommends you install H-sphere to manage your FreeVPS (I think they got templates for building hosts as well).
