The htaccess gives you the ability to redirect the visitor to different pages if they try to access an invalid page. You can use a custom error page for any type of error as long as you know its number. Example: 404 Page Not Found. The layout for this command is :
ErrorDocument errornumber /filename.html

So if you create a page called "NotFound.html" and you wanted to use it as the 404 error page, the command would be :
ErrorDocument 404 /NotFound.html

If you want to keep all of the error pages in a separate directory, just include the directory name in the file path :
ErrorDocument 404 /errorpages/NotFound.html

The most used error documents are :
400Bad RequestA generic kind of error that people get into by doing some strange stuff with your URL or scripts.
401Authorization RequiredWhen someone tries to enter a protected area without proper authorization.
403ForbiddenWhen a file with permissions not allowing it to be accessed by the user is requested.
404Not FoundKinda obvious.
500Internal Server ErrorThis may help you with internal server errors in any scripts you have running.

There are many others, but these are probably all you will ever need to know.
