In your httpd.conf you add something like this to the end of the file and restart the apache server

<VirtualHost _default_:1080>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/testvirt
ServerName Virttest

The above says that it should listen for request on the default IP of your server on port 1080 and if it gets any requests, then it gets documents from /var/www/html/testvirt

The next example show if you specify an IP address

DocumentRoot /var/www/html/virtual1server
ServerName virtual1server

This one says that it should only service requests that come in on IP on the port 1999 and the document root for this server is /var/www/html/virtual1server

Let me know if you need any more help.
Note there are a lot of extra things you can put inbetween the <VirtualHost> </VirtualHost>
