You need to do the followings:

1. Make sure that you had all the names the the server will be known in the "ServerAlias" (http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#serveralias) directive in the Vhost container.

2. Make sure that you have a DNS records for all VirtualHosts.

3. Check all the dir path, you make sure they are correct (use FULL PATH)

4. In your httpd.conf file, you need to make sure that your Mainhost, ServerName,  DocumentRoot ..... are defined (you can use the same IP as the other VirtualHosts

You need to have ServerName, ServerAlias, DocumentRoot  defined for your VirtaulHosts

eg:

 ServerName tiger.bush.us.com
......

    Define your mainhost as a VirtualHost as well (you can put it as your first VirtualHost,
just make a few records for the mainhost)

eg

<VirtualHost 216.201.174.114>
  ServerName tiger.bush.us.com
  ServerAlias tiger.bush.us.com
  DocumentRoot "/yourdoc-root"
  ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/your-path-to/cgi-bin/"
    <Directory "/www/docs/headcase/cgi-bin">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

# then put your other VirtualHost
