have a look in the inetpub/adminscripts directory.  there should be one
called something like mkw3site.vbs which will create a new top-level
website.

the syntax is something like:

mkw3site -r d:\path\to\site -h hostName --DontStart -t "Site Title" -v

the hostname is the same name that you would put in your hosts file, and is
shown under the hosts header name under iis.

you can only have one site running at once, but you can have several
websites pointing to different places.

hth,
