Great! Thanks for your help.

Sorry to be a bit of a thickie... But just for clarification... 

It might look like this

()Typo3 globe
  [-]Home          <<this is the main site

  [-]Home2         << choose this then define 'Domain' under the 'list'
     [+]Section2 etc...

Set home2 with its own templates/extension templates for page styling etc...

Now, I can load Home2 by using www.domain1.com/index.php?id=xx, but my
knowledge of Apache is, frankly, pathetic. And it's the bit about 

> point the domain at the same install using Apache

That loses me. 

Sorry, and thanks for helping a guy out

We do a bit of this. The domain bit is easy, you just create a domain record
(using the list module) on the part of the tree that you want to appear as
the root of another domain, then point the domain at the same install using

You may want to make the template at this point in the tree a rootlevel one,
so you can re-specify anything that's different between to two. You don't
have to though.
