Hi all --

I'm trying to set up a web kiosk on an old iMac.  The trick is that 
this computer will be completely offline and I need to host a couple 
different sites to it using Apache.

If it were only one site, I would just throw the files on the hard 
drive and serve them up as, but I need to find a way to set 
it up so that if the browser looks for www.abc.com Apache will serve up 
the contents of /Sites/abc/ , and if www.123.com it will point to 
/Sites/123/  (obviously these are example addresses).

Is there a way to do this?  I'm sure it will involve Virtual Domains, 
which understand only vaguely, but won't I also have to set up a "fake" 
local DNS or somesuch to point the browser to the directories?

All of the sites I need to use utilize Root addressing in some places, 
so I can _not_ use

(Note:  I'm actually using Apache 2.0.52 via the "Complete Apache" 
package, not the 1.x version that comes with OS X.  If need be I can 
always switch back to the built-in version.)

All help is appreciated.  Thank You! :)
