mutiple host names to a server

Was trying to find how to add mutiple host names to a server and at long last have found it.

Solution:1) Add the alias in the registry, using HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\OptionalNamesRef: http://www.jsifaq.com/SF/Tips/Tip.aspx?id=00622 ) Disable the Windows XP SP2 'loopback check' ("authentication failsif the FQDN ... that you use does not match the local computer name"Ref: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;896861

and from the jsifaq link:
Create an alias instead, by editing:
HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
Add Value: OptionalNames REG_SZ String: "Alias" If you make it a type REG_MULTI_SZ, you can add multiple aliases
