First of all, you need to access a website via http://servername, not
via \\WindowsName. The former requires that the name be in DNS, while
the latter is a Windows convention, and looks stuff up in WINS.

So if you want http://test and http://internal, then those names need to
be in DNS. Or in your host file.

Next, you want to look at the documentation for virtual hosts. or depending.
