Yes, definitely.  That mistake is sooo easy to make...

For me, the "NameVirtualHost" directive works best if you give the IP numbers 
*that are on the web server and will be used to server virtual domains*, and 
not the ones that have been assigned by the ISP.

This is especially the case if the web server is behind a firewall that does IP 
Masquerading or NAT.

Definitely :)  Every Linux dude should have a copy of the O'Reilly book for the 
software they have on their servers...
