Hi,
I have a Win2k as domain controler on my LAN. Its webserver and DNS is running for local, and works as an intranet.
it is address is local.firstweb.local

I want to add another webserver [Win XP] and give it a domain name and set its IP to map with local.second.local

so when I type local.secondweb.local, the  WinXP web shows up,
and when I type local.firstweb.local the windows 2k web shows up.

I do not want to use winXP's computer name or use HOSTS file. I want to set a domain for it..

How can I achive this?
Do I have to set up the DNS? if so, how?

Thanks,

Yes you need to use DNS to do this and your 2 webservers obviously need to have static IP Addresses.  Just create 2 new Forward lookup zones in DNS.  One would be local.firstweb.local and whatever its IP addres is, and the other would be local.secondweb.local and whatever its IP Address is.

Sorry - Kind of worded that wrong:

>>Just create 2 new Forward lookup zones in DNS

this should actually say "Just create 2 new hosts in your foward lookup zone in DNS"

Basically go into DNS, go to your foward lookup zone and create a new Host
