How to assign diffrent ip/hostnames to diffrent services

How do you assign a diffrent ip address or hostname to diffrent services on the same machine. I mean like I want Webmin to run on one ip/and or hostname, and I want usermin to run on a diffrent ip/and or hostname. I would also like to run VNC on a diffrent ip than the one assigned by dhcp. You see we've got a terminal server, connected to a novell server. And for security reasons of my own, I would like to assign diffrent hostnames to the services if possible. Even IPs work. I just need them to be diffrent. Is there anyway to do this?

For instance, and i don't know how much this will help, in your httpd.conf file, you can setup:

<VirtualHost IP.IP.IP.IP:80>
Directives here

For each web service. Apache does this, but I am not sure about VNC binding to a particular IP. What you will also want to do, is setup virtual IP's on one NIC. (Depending on your Distro) is
and so on for each IP address you are going to use
