When you say "point to your nameserver" do you mean the static ip address
that will be given to me by my isp? Or are we talking about reconfiguring
Apache2 or SuSE here in some way?

Will this allow visitors to see and use the full url address as they browse
through the website in the browsers address bar rather than just
http://TheDomainName/ being displayed all the time?
