More about which one?
is a decent discussion of how to configure virtual hosts on apache. (Doesn't xampp's default http.conf already use virtual hosts?). The file you need to edit, http.conf, is in c:\apachefriends\xampp\apache\conf\ (unless you didn't use the defaults when you installed it).

has a lot of info, too, including how to deal with ZoneEdit.com for DNS. ZoneEdit, however, is only free for one (or maybe two or three) domains. If you want to host for others, you'll really need to run your own DNS servers eventually. (However, setting up a DNS server is not for the faint of heart, and you must
have two public IP addresses to do so.)
