[Apache2] Creating subdomains

I always thought creating a subdomain in Apache2 was as easy as adding the following line to the httpd.conf file (domain.nl is only an example)
<VirtualHost sub.domain.nl:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@sub.domain.nl
    DocumentRoot "C:/folder/subfolder"
    ServerName sub.domain.nl
    ErrorLog logs/sub.domain.nl-error_log
    CustomLog logs/sub.domain.nl-access_log common
This conf doesn't work, I get a http 404 not found when going to sub.domain.nl, yet domain.nl still works. What the heck am I doing wrong? I already read about RewriteRules, but what I saw is that it may be a step too far for the simple thing I am trying to achieve, after all, VirtualHost was made for this kind of things, right? Can someone help me? Thanks!
do you have NameVirtualHost *:80 set??

btw I use this
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName sub.domain.com
        DocumentRoot /path/to/sub/domain/public_html/
        ErrorLog /var/log/sub.domain.error.log
        CustomLog /var/log/sub.domain.access.log common
        <Directory "/path/to/sub/domain/public_html">
                Options Indexes MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
I used your example (except for the <directory>...</directory> thing, I just use default), but still nothing. NameVirtualHost *:80 has been set and uncommented (I noticed there was still a # before it, I removed it and restarted Apache2, but still nothing). The directory-path is OK, it exists, has an dummy index.html file in it.
O...K It's getting weird now. I have added a sub.domain.nl subdomain in my domain control panel at my registrar. Points to the same IP etc and it works now... But when I go to domain.nl, I see the contents of the subdomain! I am getting headaches now, I have no idea what I have done wrong... I'm gonna start all over again tomorrow afternoon, to retrace my steps where it went wrong.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
