you need to edit the httpd.conf file. open the file with any text editor such as notepad, ect... browse down and find this selection:
# Aliases: Add here as many aliases as you need (with no limit). The format is
# Alias fakename realname
# Note that if you include a trailing / on fakename then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL. So "/icons" isn't aliased in this
# example, only "/icons/". If the fakename is slash-terminated, then the
# realname must also be slash terminated, and if the fakename omits the
# trailing slash, the realname must also omit it.
# We include the /icons/ alias for FancyIndexed directory listings. If you
# do not use FancyIndexing, you may comment this out.
Alias /icons/ "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/icons/"
<Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/icons">
Options Indexes MultiViews
Allow from all
this is where you need to put your info. say you wanteed to add another directory to your site for example: http://xxx.xx.xxx.xx/docs/.
then you would type this in:
Alias /docs/ "the full path to the directory of the files/"
<Directory "the full path to the directory of the files">
Allow from all
note: i would create a folder in the root directory of your drive, like "C:\Docs" or "C:\Some other folder". that way it would be easier to type in the path.
example: if you wanted to point http://xxx.xx.xxx.xx/docs/ to the folder "C:\Docs", then where it says "the full path to the directory of the files", type in "C:\Docs" in both places.

heh, think of the internet chaos if that was actually possible =). I suppose technically if people were connecting to your DNS specfiically that would work, but to get an actual domain you need to pay to get it registered. Companies like godaddy.com have them dirt cheap these days, i think its only like $5/year for one now.
You can also get free ones from companies like no-ip.com
Basically you run a little program on your server that tells no-ip.com whenever your IP changes, and that change is updated on their DNS servers (some routers have this built in these days with some of the popular sites like no-ip and dyndns). So you can have
http://example.no-ip.com link to your server.

you have to buy and regester a domain name. do a goggle search for "register domain name". i got mine through www.mydomain.com for $7.99 a year. there are some thats a bit cheaper. there are some places that charge up to $50 for domain names, stay away from those. the others that charge less do the same thing. most sites have dns management that allow you to point www.yoursite.com to the ip of your server. thats what i did. or like vhockey said, you can get free domains to.
