Smile Apache 2 webserver, hosting multiple websites

Hi all!
I am a newbie and have been using debian (the latest) and have managed to setup apache and it serves my 1 domain page just fine. My question is this;
How do I get apache to serve sites for other domains my server is hosting?
I have read some walk thus but I find it all a confusing!
I read a guide that talked about virtual users but I just don't get it.

Thanks for any help in advance.

It's VirtualHosts.

Goes something like...

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/.........(where your website's folder is)

Not sure what debian is like but if it's like ubuntu then you put the above into a file in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ folder.
