@TeuS it is the SEARCH you can specify, 1st word the URL, 2nd word(s) the item to search

default for IE6 is MSN, so when you just fill in madshrimps it will look there,
if you fill in "google madshrimps" the preconfigured regsettings will kick in & will send you to http://www.google.com/search?q=madshrimps

this is not a way to make a shortcut to a certain site. What you want to do can be accomplished by creating a bookmark in the root of favorites named "mad" and that points to www.madshrimps.be

if you then fill in mad in the address bar it will give you the option to go to the MAD bookmark.

or alternativly you can add a line to the hosts file on your PC \\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

ip of [M] site MAD

but I doubt that this will work since this is a shared virtual hosting

edit: checked it, doesnt work :/

@Bosw8er: you figured it out, congratz only took you 2h40min

Thank you, it's always a pleasure AND an honour to correct your mistakes.

Your gettin' sloppy though ... normally it takes 3 to 4 days before you congratulate me.
