You can make as many numbers of subwebs you want in one TYPO3 installalation, 
like www.mydomain.com, home.mydomain.com, test.mydomain.com, bike.mydomain.com. 
But what you are asking for isn't any subweb, but a page lower in the pagetree. 
When you are making a pagetree structure in TYPO3 it's really the same as 
making folders in a static websites. Using realurl you also will get the 
right url, like www.domain.com/webpage/, and not www.domain.com/index.php&xxxx. 
You can also use different templates for each "folder"/page in the pagetree.

So you have to know if what you really want is to make a subweb (subdomain), 
or something thats looks like a child folder on your website. Remember, TYPO3 
only use folders for the program, all the structure (pagetree/folders) and 
content are in the database.

And of course you can have the TYPO3 installation in a subfolder and another 
in another subfolder, and configure different domains to point at these subfolders.

But your question tells me one thing, you should read the documentation. 
Start with quickstart, continue with Modern Template Building and/or Futuristic 
Template Building. Take also a good look at Typoscript by Example and TSREF. 
You could also check out the testsite package, http://typo3.org/download/packages/, 
who also gives some answers. But quickstart page 82 should give the answer 
regarding more than one web in one installation.
