i have a application on a windows 2003 server that web based. so the url is something like
http://myserver:1234/xyz/f?p=110 (exzample). Now i need to create a (windows)DNS alias that would map to this site. I managed to create a alias for http://myserver but how can i add the rest of it. i mean the port number abd the dir etc ? Is there a way to do this or will users have to type in the port number themselfs.

sorry to disappoint you, but a dns alias can only be used to redirect from one server name to another. No port redirection, no directory.
With a DNS alias (CNAME record) you can "redirect" from http://www.domai.com to http://domai.com.

You are looking for something else, called web site redirection.

Apache has a module that deals nicely with your problem, called mod_rewrite.

Since you probably use IIS, take a look at http://www.isapirewrite.com/
