Making Apache Aware of a WebSite

I am running Debian Lenny and have apache 2 up and running. Configured DDClient with my domain name.
How do I make Apache aware of/enable a webpage I created in /home/www ?
I have searched apache howto's and they are a bit confusing. Do I need to edit httpd.conf and what goes in it? Right now it is a 0 byte file.

Explore To /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and edit the VirtualHost Entry
ServerName localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
ServerRoot root
Errorlog < leave this as what it is>
CustomLog < leave this too>
Put any index.html file there under /var/www/html directory
Dont forget to restart the apache2 service.
