I use Godaddy for a domain name and for web hosting. I have SBS 2003 server running exchange and rww, but no http.

How do I set up my DNS records so that if I type thisexample.com it will go to the web host instead of trying to go to the sbs server which will give an error.
I have to type www.thisexample.com to go to the website.
I type thisexample.com/remote to go to the rww site.
Is what I am asking even possible with this setup? Thanks for any help.

Currently the records are set up.

ARecord        @        x.x.x.x (static ip of my dsl connection)
ARecord       www y.y.y.y (godaddy webhost)
ARecord       ftp       y.y.y.y
ARecord   remote x.x.x.x
ARecord   mail x.x.x.x
CNAME       mobilemail       mobilemail-v01.prod.mesa1.secureserver.net
CNAME       pda       mobilemail-v01.prod.mesa1.secureserver.net
CNAME       email       email.secureserver.net
CNAME    smtp         smtp.secureserver.net
CNAME    pop        pop.secureserver.net
CNAME    webmail       webmail.secureserver.net
CNAME     imap     imap.secureserver.net
MX       @       mailstore1.secureserver.net
MX       @       smtp.secureserver.net
MX       @       mail.thisexample.com (my domain name)

Right now, it looks like you'd use www.thisexample.com to get to the hosted site and remote.thisexample.com to get to the SBS site.  You won't be able to use www.thisexample.com/remote to get to the SBS site unless you create a page on the hosted site that would redirect.  I think you can change the @ record above to y.y.y.y if you want queries to thisexample.com to go to the hosted site instead of the SBS site.  Does that help?
