How to direct a tertiary domain name

I use google hosting for my domain name.

I would like to create a special domain name: sidekick.brianandkathi.com
I want this to go to a different page than www.brianandkathi.com

I think I need to create a new CNAME record, and I have done so, but from what I can tell, the CNAME record for sidekick.brianandkathi.com must point to Google (ghs.google.com)

So how do I get Google to redirect "sidekick.brianandkathi.com" to "www.brianandkathi.com-a.googlepages.com/sidekick" which is where the actual page will exist?

I was able to get this working on my own.

I had to use Google Sites to create a "site" on my domain, then I made that site public as http://sidekick.brianandkathi.com, then I created a CNAME record with my domain registrar that pointed to ghs.google.com as the host, then I configured a Web Address Mapping from inside Google Apps (the hosting control panel) that resolved my chosen sitename (sidekick.brianandkathi.com) to the google sites address (http://sites.google.com/a/brianandkathi.com/sidekick)
