DNS Records To Webserver

Hi all, pretty simple one I think but I've forgotten how to do it.

I have a public a record for "conferencing" going to one of my public IPs for my domain.

So when I go to conferencing.mydomain.com I get an IIS7 page.

The user does not want to change IIS but the address should be conferencing.mydomain.com/landingpage

What records (if any) can I put on Public DNS so it goes to/landingpage or do I have to change the default page in IIS?

Thanks

Is landing page a web page? html, asp, php or whatever?

Then change the default start page to the landingpage.
Check your IIS page for the "Default Document", when accessing thesite, the server will run through the list and load the first page it encounters, so make sure that you your landing page is the first item in the list.

Or use the URL re-write feature to re-direct to the correct page.

P.S. You will not be able to do this via DNS, because "conferencing.mydomain.com/landingpage" cannot be translated to a valid DNS name.
