looking to add a record so that  users looking to go to my website can use:

something.com      
in addition to
www.something.com   

With Linux this is easy as all i had to do is create an additional A record that looked like the following:


something.com.           IN           A           10.10.10.50
www                          IN           A           10.10.10.50

the   something.com  would all users to simply put in    something.com eliminating the www portion.    Can't see how to do this with a Windows DNS Server.
