Separate IPs instead of host headers

OK, here's what I have going on, I'll try to provide as much detail as possible.
We have a 2003 Enterprise Edition Server running IIS 6 all latest patches. On said server we have a default website running about 2 virtual directories for websites. We also have 2 stand alone web sites which were initially configured to use host headers
as we only had one IP on the server.
In order to add individual SSLs for the 2 stand alone sites I have added 2 more IPs to the box's TCP/IP stack and assigned those IPs to the web sites. I reconfigured the Default site and all virtual sites behind it to use the original IP address of the
Now you can browse the 2 stand alone sites by IP on the network fine but hitting it from outside routes you to the Default site.
Is there something outside of IIS that needs configuring? DNS to route the domain names to the 2 new IPs?

tom, thanks for you help. I'm closer.
I have our DNS provider pointing the domain names to IPs. Only problem now is that the sites don't work unless you put www before the name. Do you have any advice on that?

The dns provider also needs to add records for the domain names to point to those addresses.
