hmm, i don't know if that is good advice in this situation.  If you 
want each user to truly have their own webserver that they can stop and 
start, then the different port solution is probably best.  This would 
usually apply to users that are developers or have specific config 
information that they would want to control.  If, however, these users 
are just displaying static content or cgis (and don't need special 
configuration for their server) then mod_userdir would probably help 
you out (and no aliasing needed).
