[Mediawiki-l] Making language links like [[fr:Ceci est un test]] work

I've tried to find out how to start the multi-lingual thing with
"en.mysite.com" and "fr.mysite.com" etc. but though there is a lot on
translation of messages and stuff I cannot find where it talks about this
prefixing of the site domain name.
I would like to have my wiki work multi-lingually like www.wikipedia.org in
that a user can put on the English page "This is a test" a link to the
French version of the page, "Ceci est un test".
By inspecting wikipedia I see that the user text would look like [[fr:Ceci
est un test]], but when I try this sort of thing on my local wiki all I get
displayed is "fr:Ceci est un test"
e.g. if I put [[fr:Arts]] on the following page
it just becomes a standard wiki-link in the middle of the page to:
rather than an entry in a side menu to a "French" version of the page.
So, my questions:
1) What am I missing in terms of my setup to process this stuff correctly?
2) Where is this documented?
3) What would the URL look like during development? I cannot quite imagine
where the "en." would appear in a "localhost" style URL.
