^^^^ Hi,
you've only to change your DNS service or hosts file (c:\windows\hosts under
Win95, the same file under other path on the server) in the way

ip1           hostname   hostalias1   hostalias2

i.e.  peter.europe.earth   paul.europe.earth   mary.europe.earth

Now you can use one hostname and two host aliases that point to the same ip.
Change the hosts file on all machines without DNS access you need for this.
Another way is to create one line for each hostname all with the same IP
address. But the above is more elegant and clearly arranged.
