I will explain my question as an example. First I don't now much about windows server 2003

Suppose I have an URL\DotNetNuke, which is an installation of DotNetNuke.
Right now in the root I have an index.asp which redirects all incoming request to\DotNetNuke. So when I type, I get\DotNetNuke.

Now the problem is there a way to get the like an alias, or something. So in resume I want to type and to recived\DotNetNuke, but without seeing the DotNetNuke in the address bar.

    You could have the index.asp inside of an iframe.  Just have the iframe be 100% x 100% of the page.  That way you can have the main page call the index.asp inside the iframe which in turn calls the DotNetNuke page.  You may need to call the main page index.asp and name the redirecting page something else - like redirect.asp.  That way when is accessed it will open the index.asp page with the redirect.asp page inside.  If you need me to explain it better let me know.
