varnish configuration

I am willing to use varnish as caching and my goal is to put varnish on the top and point DNS to varnish and if it has cached images and js or static pages so it should not even reach webboxes but serve from varnish box itself and other URLs should be served from web boxes.

How would we set up to say pick blah.js or other images to be served from varnish and rest go to main web server's (x2) which is loadbalanced.

And how does generally varnish routes traffic to webservers?

Some kind of explanation and snippet would be great.

Regards.

thank you for your answer but may i know what does varnish do with ssl queries.

for example.

http://www.ashishnepal.com works fine
how does varnish treat https:// i know it says no to ssl but how is that treated?

Varnish dosen't handle SSL, so you'll need a separate SSL terminatior sitting on port 443, in front of the port 80 varnish instance.
