turns out the solution was very simple, but highly undocumented. what i 
had to do was follow these directions to setup the IP addresses:


then after that, subfolders and IP addresses were working great. however 
i noticed that PHP was acting up bigtime. did a lot more research and 
found that uncommenting the "doc_root=" line in the php.ini solved the 
PHP problems. now everything seems to be working. Windows 2003 with PHP5 
has certainly been a headache, but all working now. was it worth it, who 
knows? haha.
