Setting up different sites instead of using //localhost

Hi,

This is a followup to my question here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_21878153.html

So I installed an old copy of Win2000 Server.

Now i'd like to use a unique url to access each of the sites i'm working on, instead of accessing them thru local host. Eg: //jasonzsite/ -> where jasonzsite is what formerly used to be localhost, or www.clienta.com - > where www.clienta.com is what used to earlier be //localhost

How do I do this "Virtual WebSites" stuff as mentioned in my earlier questions accepted answer?

Thank You

NameVirtualHost *

## DEFAULT SITE

<VirtualHost *>
      # Use Main Settings as Default
      HostnameLookups On
</VirtualHost>

## VIRTUAL SITES

<VirtualHost *>
     ServerName www.site1.com
     ServerAlias site1.com *.site1.com
     DocumentRoot C:/www/site
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80 *:286>
     ServerName www.site2.com
     ServerAlias site2.com *.site2.com
     DocumentRoot c:/www/site2
</VirtualHost>




What you have to remeber is that all traffic including http://localhost/ http://127.0.0.1/ coming to the servers IP will get handles by the first rule. The site will only direct traffic to the other 2 if it sees a valid request in a browser for http://www.site1.com/ etc so if its a development machine you will need to edit the hosts file and set these to point to yourself otherwise it will try to visit them directly on the internet.

Sorry last one should be

<VirtualHost *>
     ServerName www.site2.com
     ServerAlias site2.com *.site2.com
     DocumentRoot c:/www/site2
</VirtualHost>
