Assuming you have resume.daevid.com as a CNAME of daevid.com, and
daevid.com resolves to (and some other obvious
assumptions), you could just do this:

As user daevid, with ~/ = /home/daevid, do:

# mkdir ~/resume
# ln -s ~/public_html/resume.shtml ~/resume/index.shtml

as root, edit httpd.conf:


      ServerName resume.daevid.com
      DocumentRoot /home/daevid/resume/
      ServerAdmin w-e-b-m-a-s-t-e-r at daevid.com

Then restart apache.
