I am working on a network where we have a machine mymachine.mydomain.com.  I want to set up a website on that machine that is accessible from other machines on the network.  

How do I set up so that the other machines can access http://mymachine.mydomain.com/mypage

(I don't need the 'mypage', they could access it without that if that's easier).

Create a Host A record for that machine in dns and then use your FQDN to access it.

From what you posted it would appear mymachine.mydomain.com is merely a member of the root Active Directory domain mydomain.com. The mymachine part of the FQDN is merely the name of the machine - it doesn't necessarily indicate there is a sub-domain in play here.

Anyway, assuming the Web Service on the web server is up and running (test it by typing http://localhost on the server, and see if you get a response), all you need to do is open the DNS console from Administrative Tools on one of your DNS Servers, and add the appropriate A record mapping the name of the computer to its static IP address. You can then internally type this into the browser, and it should resolve.
