Also, as a follow-up to my last reply, does anyone know of a simple howto that covers this
type of setup (ie: walks through the entire process)?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the response Steve!

A while after I sent this message I ran across a site that told me just that.  When it still
didn't work, I realized it was also a directory permissions issue.

After working with the permissions (linux system) I was able to access the pages.

Now I find that the user cannot update or create new pages or directories.  I think I over-did
the permissions just a bit.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you,

Each time you add a new place in your filesystem that will be referenced by apache, such as
the DocumentRoot statement inside your virtual hosts blocks, you nearly always have to add
a <Directory> statement permitting access to that place. 
For example, I have:
<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

I am attempting to set up a vhost machine using CentOS.

The issue I am having is with the user's home directories (where the pages are being server
each site).  Example:  The user's site is <>   and they have a home directory
called 'example'.  Inside thier home directory is a directory called 'www'.

Long story short, I have added the vhost part to the httpd.conf and the directory statement.
I get 
the message in the error log that "Permission is denied for /index.htm".

If anyone needs any additional information, please ask.

Thank you.
