How do I enter http://192.168.123.123/home/default.aspx in to DNS so that when inside my domain when I type in http://sharepoint1 into a browser I get the above webpage?

First, you can't map a url to a domain name. You can have sharepoint1 map to 192.168.123.123, but not to 192.168.123.123/home/default.aspx. To do this you simply open up the control panel on the dns server and add a host record (A).

Second, if this machine is part of a domain, you should be able to reach it using the computer name given to the server. If that is a different name than "sharepoint1", you'll have to manually add it to DNS, if the name is the same, you might have problem with your dns/active directory setup.

can it be done through IIS?

Commented:
It can, but are there other websites on that server?

Sure, the homepage for the 192.168.123.123 web server can be set to redirect to /home/default.aspx.  Here is a reference link:

Sounds good but I still want to be able to access it from the current way.

Maybe I need this explained better, I dont really work with IIS much.
Thanks

We have not found a solution for this yet, however since we have not had the time to invest in fixing it, I am going to close this question to make the EE gods happy, and open a new question later.
Thanks for your help all.
