If i hosted a few web sites under the same root and had a global.asax file(asp.net) read the url that the user is trying to view. Then redirected them. would this pentalize me? for example. if you goto radiou.com it will redirect you to http://tvulive.com/radiou/ or even if i had it do this http://radiou.com/radiou/. Does this constitute cloaking and is there a better pratice.

That is a variation of the technique of using a script to create subdomains out of one site. I think the redirection will eventually cause trouble with the search engines for you.

IMO it would be better to create virtual hosts out of each distinct host/domain. These are much safer than redirection and better received by all search engines.
