Windows 2003 subdomain redirection

On a Windows 2003 server with IIS 6
When someone visits http://thiscouldbeanything.mydomain.com, I would like them to be redirected to http://mydomain.com/index.asp?id=thiscouldbeanything

I want to do this without having to setup subdomains, meaning what ever is used as a subdomain name this redirection would work. example: http://abc.mydomain.com would be redirected to http://mydomain.com/index.asp?id=abc

Can someone help me with this?

If you set up your DNS with an @ record pointing to your server at mydomain.com, then it acts as a wildcard, and anything at your domain (that is not actually listed there) will go to your default.
You then need to modify the default.asp page on the default server to redirect.
With the default.asp, look for "server_name" and then redirect to http://mydomain.com/index.asp?id=server_name
Dim SrvName
SrvName = Split(Request.ServerVariables("server_name"), ".")
