ISA - how to publish virtual directory?

I have web server on server1, with two virtual directories: http://server1/site1 and http://server1/site2

How can I publish them on ISA so that internet user typing would get to /site1 and user typing would get to /site2?

Related question: I have published Outlook Web Access, and it's working; internet users have to type I would prefer them to type com instead, which requires that I redirect the request from the root to virtual directory. How can I do that?

I came up with a solution of putting a trivial redirection script in the root, but once redirected, instead of the usual logon prompt the page fails with "500 Internal Server Error - The network logon failed. (1790)"

Two ways.

1. Set one site on port 80 and the second site on port 81. Create two publishing rules each with its own listener (one on 80 and one on 81) and forward accordingly based on the fqdn.

2. Use the same listener and publishing rule but configure IIS to use site headers.

3. You will need to change the ssl certificate on the ISA and on the Exchange server to match the new name; change your external MX record to point to the new name (an alias will not work in this scenario). Create an A record on your external DNS for the name outlook, bridge or tunnel ssl on ISA to the exchange server, make a fudge to create the /exchange virtual directory appear as the top level of that web site. Rather you than me as its yukky, and a nightmare to support.....

On point 3, if you are only running OWA in http mode internally, you will only have to change the SSL certificate on ISA as you can bridge the ssl to http from ISA to Exchange
