I want www.domain.com request to appear as www.domain.com (EVEN though the application is in subfolder, i.i., www.domain.com/subfolder).  I only would like this to be on the initial request if possible

What you are asking for is called URL cloaking or URL masking.

There are a couple of ways to do this...

1) Helicon Tech's ISAPI_Rewrite application: http://www.isapirewrite.com/

2) Using frames, but this requires the website be modified: http://forums.iis.net/t/1123190.aspx

It is a dnn site, with other applications running in other folders, which is why we have it split up - I am a little unsure of how to attakc this, as I do not have full access to IIS, it is hosted...can this be done with dnn ?

After some quick research, it seems under DNN that only frames is the work around to URL masking/cloaking. Otherwise you risk breaking the session cookies for logins.
