Fast subdomains in VirtualHost - how?

I have Apache2 but i don't have server DNS, so i connected my domain to IP adress.

In /etc/apache2/sites-available/default i have:

PHP Code:
NameVirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip

<VirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip>
DocumentRoot /var/www
 ServerName domain

VirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip>
DocumentRoot /var/www
 ServerName www

VirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip>
DocumentRoot /var/www
 ServerName subdomain1

VirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip>
DocumentRoot /var/www
 ServerName www
(ip.ip.ip.ip is IP my server)

I would like so automatically: -> /var/www/subdomain2 -> /var/www/subdomain3 -> /var/www/subdomain4
... -> /var/www/subdomain9999

Probably mod_rewrite will do the job and or you could have index pages that redirect with a refresh. But to really accomplish what you're trying to do if you're going to use name based hosting to redirect, you need some type of DNS setup or you'll have to put the names and IP's in your local hosts file, etc.
