I have a server running Sharepoint 3.0. I have one site up and running and I want to create a second sharepoint site there but with a different URL. Lets say my company name is: company.com. Currently, the default web site in IIS goes to the server name as in: //SERVER1. Should I leave the host header field empty when creating a new web app in my sharepoint server?

No, don't leave it empty.  Make it whatever your URL will be.  For example, if you wanted the new site to be http://sp.company.com, the host header would be sp.company.com.
