I would like to use a sub-domain to point directly to a page inside a site.  I have used CNAMES to point to another site entirely but can they be used to point to a PAGE inside a site.  If a CNAME is not the right way, what is.  I know I can configure APACHE to listen for careers.site.com and use an HTML redirect page.  But I was looking for a more direct method using DNS.

Example: careers.site.com  = www.site.com\contact\apply\career.htm
