I use 5, not 6, but here's how it's done in IIS5:

Open Internet Services Manager
Select the website
Click the 'Properties' button (in IIS5 it's the little hand pointing to
a document)
You should be on the 'Web Site' tab. Click the 'Advanced' button in the
'Web Site Identification' section at the top.
Click the 'Add' button in the top box, 'Multiple identities for this Web
Choose (or not) the IP address and enter the TCP port (80, I hope :) and
then put whatever you want in the 'Host Header Name' field, as in
'mysite.com' or 'bob.mysite.com' or, if you have two domain names and
you want 'em both to point to the same site, you could enter all these:


That should provide endless happiness.
