Yes; and where exactly is your problem?
Open the DNS MMC, expand your forward lookup zone, create a new host (A) entry, for example "www". pointing to the IP address of the server.

I already have host record pointing to a www. What about a second one.

A second what? For the obvious reason, you can only have one "www" host entry. You can add multiple IP addresses to that entry, and the DNS server will then use "round robin", alternating the different IP addresses between the incoming queries.
What is it *exactly* you want to achieve?

create a second ip for the www host entry record.

Just create a new host entry "www" with the other address.
The next time you do an "nslookup www", the server will answer with both addresses (you might have to do an "ipconfig /flushdns" on the client first).

It will not let me create a host entry for www with a different ip.

I have a cname www record point to a external ip address for our website. I have a server inside of our network that host to of our websites. I need to allow my users to access the two websites. What record do I need to create to allow this.

Thanks,
John

A round-robin entry won't help you here. You have two different websites, so you'll need two different host names, so that your users can access the correct site.
Add an entry like "intranet", pointing to your internal web site, and leave the www entry pointing to your external IP.
