In your httpd.conf file


<VirtualHost first.name.com>
ServerName first.name.com
DocumentRoot /usr/local/firstnameroot
DirectoryIndex index.html
Alias /firstnameroot/icons /usr/local/firstnameroot/icons
Alias /anotheralias/     /usr/local/firstnameroot/thealias
</VirtualHost>

Do this for each host but note you have to have
nameserver point to the webserver for all names
