Creating a Subdomain on IIS 6

Easy on Apache, not here...

(I hope this is the right place to open this thread...)


I'm struggling with a new client here. I'm trying to create and redirect a subdomain (secure.example.com) to setup a secure store. I'm having serious issues installing php/mysql on a very old IIS server, so I decided to use a redirect to a linux based server. Thing is, the domain is setup here too, so I'm looking at this "dnsmgmt" screen trying to redirect(even create) the subdomain to no avail. I get all kinds of error messages and all my test are not working at all. Some help here? How can I do this?

THanks in advance!

How old is the IIS server?

If its windows 2000 just set up a new website and do properties host headers and set up the new host header as the only host header for the site.
