my problem shouldn't be very difficult to answer for u guyz.
i have developed a website and want to configure it on a local win2k server first, so that it could be tested by other users, before it actually goes online. right now i have put the root folder (let's call it "mywebsite") in c:\inetpub\wwwroot and using http://localhost/mywebsite
but now i want it to host it as a separate website and map it with some IP address, hostheader name and all that stuff. i surfed internet for this and got some instructions but somehow it didn't work. if someone out there could plz tell me , how do i do it, from scratch.
