While specifics vary with the DNS server you're using, generally speaking the DNS database needs an 'A' (HOST) record for each machine on the LAN, including the web server. An 'A' record will resolve an address for each pc name in the form hostname.example.com. For the machine hosting the IIS webserver, add a 'CNAME' (CANONICAL NAME or ALIAS) record which connects the alias 'www.example.com' to a physical host name 'web1.example.com'. These should be created in a Zone that services your LAN, and this zone should be set to listen for DNS requests only on the internal LAN interface, if the DNS machine has more than one interface.

you must use different host header names for each web site that u host on your iis web server.to do this right click the site in iis to get to its properties and then give it a name like www.example.com

set up dns normally on your network...configure your clients to dnamically update their entries in dns then use host headers in iis.iis will take care of the name resolution for u !!!!!
