I have IIS 7.5

I am trying to set up my computer to run websites in a tutorial...
That tutorial has four folders that needs to be configured as virtual hosts...  
c:\myfolder\mywebsite1
c:\myfolder\mywebsite2
c:\myfolder\mywebsite3
c:\myfolder\mywebsite4


In the tutorial they have asked to create four virtual hosts for those four folders in IIS 7.5.. I dont know how to do that...

All those folders are on my single machine... (So guess there is no requirement in virtual-hosting)

However, when i checked the tutorials, in the screenshots it says  http:\\mywebsite1
http:\\mywebsite2 , http:\\mywebsite3 , http:\\mywebsite4 
i.e. without the localhost or the server name... I cannot open the websites like http:\\mywebsite1 or http:\\mywebsite2 etc... i have to put http:\\localhost\mywebsite1 

The tutorials does not run by putting http://localhost/mywebsite1 ... how can i create websites like -
  http:\\mywebsite1 
http:\\mywebsite2 , http:\\mywebsite3 , http:\\mywebsite4 
so that i can run all my tutorials  


I tried using hosts file in windows folder but it did not work
how can i do that in IIS 7.5 ... please help
thanks a lot

I created a short video for you to show how it works
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMTY_56XXCU
1. create new websites in IIS
2. give each website its own unique hostname
3. edit your hosts file to reflect the hostname i.e. website1 127.0.0.1
4. Test Website by going to IIS and then use the browse Websitex on port 80
