Apache 1.3.33 and subdomain

Hi all
I am using Debian 3.1 with LAMP installed
Apache 1.3.33,PHP 4.3.11 and Mysql 4.1
And now i would like open it to my friends so that they can publish their homepage
And here is the question :
Some of my friends want to have their own web site with subdomain provided by simply adding a folder under public_html
for example :

domain =

when user create a directory named diary
then they can visit it by typing : instead of

Virtualhost config :
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /home/demo/public_html/

I know the subdomain can be config by hard-coded in httpd.conf
but seems it is not efficient and non-sense

I know this question had been asked by the someone here for many times
and i had search through the web for solution
I am not sure that if can be achieved by using the mod_rewrite in apache
but seems mod_rewrite only support apache 2.x,right?
And I want to keep using Apache 1.3.33 if possible

Hope it is not boring for your guys for this boring post
Hope i can get some hints from here
And thanks for everyone for reading it
