I have prepared an Intranet Website using ASP.Net. Presently if somebody wants to view this website he can view with the adress like http://<ipaddress>/<pagename.aspx> but I want the user to view the page by
the adress like http://www.<websitename>.com or any similar name which should not use the ip adress.
I am using IIS 5.1, how to achieve this. Please note that this is a purely intranet website.
Thanks in Advance ;-)

Thank you very much for the help. I solved the problem in the following way.
I wrote website header name what I wanted like "Myweb". Then I made a simple exe file using C which makes the host entry of this word against the server ip. And I requested all users to run this exe only once before running the website.

i am running XP professional. what is application mapping?
Also, there is something i noticed in the user accounts in control panel that aspnet account is not there. I reinstalled .net framework and it appeared but then vanished again.

Yes, check the app mapping setting as pointed out by Jeff. do you see .asp .asa mapping in the list? Go to other IIS machine and recreate the mapping config
