You can do this in the IIS admin MMC (or computer management I think) in administrative tools. Right click your site, choose "new virtual directory" (or new virtual folder), and go from there.

Or are you wanting to accompolish this with script?

I would like to do it using script.

For those who could not be bothered to follow the other link, I would like to emulate this site:
http://santa.clause.swellserver.com/news/top_stories/auto80.php

basically, users can type in whatever subdomains they like and the page will process it.

For starters, this stuff can be difficult to understand and I admittedly have a tenative grasp on the subject (at best). That being said, I found a more direct example (not specifically what you need, but if used in conjunction with the references in my last suggestion, it should help):

This page will show you how to:

      -Verifying that a virtual directory exists
      -Creating and deleting virtual directories
      -Setting and updating any of the properties on IIS
      -Invoking any of the IIS-specific methods

Site: http://www.15seconds.com/issue/010710.htm

Also of help might be the MSDN Scriptcenter:

     http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter

Might look under "Create a Primary DNS Zone", among others.

More scripting help:

     http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/scriptcenter/scrptfaq.mspx#XSLTsection123121120120

I also HIGHLY recommend the "Script Center Repository", a collection of examples of just about every imaginable ADSI script available (1.6mb):
