Other network computers can't see internally-hosted site

I have a small home network with all Windows XP machines and a Linksys compact wireless router. All the computers are wired in, not wireless. I have a dynamic IP to the Internet, but as I'm figuring out this webhosting thing, I'm using a DynDNS dynamic DNS, and the Linksys compact router is set up to auto-update DynDNS as to my IP with my broadband ISP. All of the workstation are pointed to the router's IP address for their DNS.

I've set up IIS in Windows XP on one of my network computers. I've set port forwardng in my router to point "www" to that IIS-running computer. Problem is, when I type in the proper Internet web address, none of the internal network computers can see the web page I've set up on that computer.

I've had this happen before on my office network that my business partner manages. He had to set up some kind of internal DNS record so that our workstations could see the websites hosted on our server.

What do I need to do so my network workstations can see the internally hosted site?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld lawyervon, and happy new year...5 minutes to go for me. ;)

You need to add the website address in your hosts file.

sorry, gotta run...
