There are two IP address linked to one Nic card on my Windows 2000 Server.     I checked the DNS server and only one address had a host record.   I added a record with the second IP address.  When I ping the first IP address it resolves the name, but when I ping the second IP adress it does not resolve to a name.   Is there something else I need to do?

You can't have two IP address on the same Nic. If you want two different IP Addresses then you need to install another Network card.

You can add another entry on the DNS, for that second IP.

Open DNSmgmt.msc, then expand your company name, and add a new host, give it the name, the IP and finnish.

Try again !

Best Regards!

Dwelldon, Of course you can have more than one IP per card.  Not sure of the limit but have certainly used 4 in specific circumstances (one per virtual Lotus Domino server in that case).  In fact he already has that...

Have you added a reverse lookup PTR entry to the reverse lookup zone aswell as an A record for the forward lookup zone?  If not then there is nothing to convert the IP back into the hostname, it won't use forward lookup zone to do that.
