Sorry I never got back sooner... yeah what I had done was changed the default co-domain record that ispconfig creates to include the hostname 'www'.
Thanks every so much for your help!
Ever wonder why they choose the name 'Vista' ?
Viruses, Instability, Spyware, Trojans, Adware, alas just another Windows release
Tired of having all that... try Ubuntu (Debian on steriods)
