Dynamic Host Headers in IIS 6

Is there a way to use a "catch-all" host header for a web site in IIS?  I have a catch-all A record pointing at a single IP address and I would like IIS to route requests for all subdomains of a given domain to one web site.  Is this possible?  I believe this can easily be done with Apache.

1. Select Site -->Rt click-- Properties --
2. Web Site ( Tab ) -->
3. IP Address {Advanced} <--click
4. Add host headers and sub domain names that needs to point to same location...with port 80.. ;-)

Hope this helps ... If I am wrong with any information let me know ... I am not too clear on u r Question.. cheers good luck...

With Apache, I can use a wild-card host header that will trap all subdomain requests instead of having to add them individually.
 With IIS, I either need a "catch-all" or wild card to handle a variable number of host headers similar to what I can do with Apache or a dynamic solution that will programmatically add the individual host headers.

Based upon information from the web sites you provided, I think the easiest solution would be for me to aquire a separate IP address.  Otherwise, a custom URL manipulation engine (such as ISAP Rewrite) would be needed.
