Sharepoint Alternate Access Mappings not working

Ive just installed MOSS 2007 and im trying to set up my URL's so that the users can access an intranet web site by typing a URL without the port number.
The default URL I set up is http://camel:102
I want the URL to be http://tiger

Im not concerned with users on the internet accessing this URL, im only interested in getting local intranet users to access the site by using the ammended URL http://tiger

Im using Server2003, IIS6 and MOSS2007

Do i have to alter IIS6, DNS and AAM settings? can someone please explain the process.
Thanks

 Changing Sharepoint site url from http://servername:port to http://sitename 
For reference purposes: Current URL: http://sharepoint:4755
 
Desired URL: http://itweb 
  • Before going into IIS / Sharepoint, first we need to      create a DNS ANAME host record for the new host name of itweb      and assign it the ip address of the sharepoint server.
  • Open IIS Manager.
  • Expand the list of websites and      find SharePoint-4755.  Select site to see menu in right menu      pane.
  • In the Actions menu pane, click on the Bindings.
  • Click on the Add button on the Site Binding
  • Change the port number to 80.
  • Change the IP address to All unassigned
  • In the host header value field type the hostname you      desire, in this case itweb.  Click OK, then click OK on the web      properties.
  • Now go into your SharePoint Central Administration      and click on Operations.
  • Now click Alternate Access Mappings under Global      Configuration.
  • In the top right corner, select the web application      you wish to work with, in this case it is SharePoint-4755.
  • Now all Internal URL's associated with that site      should be listed.  In my case there was only one, http://sharepoint:4755.  Click on      the URL.
  • Now in the URL protocol, host and port field type http://itweb/ and click ok.  Dont change the      zone.  Leave it on default.
  • Now close SharePoint Central Administration and open      your web browser and type in the new URL, http://itweb.
