Are you referring to doing this with DNS or with windows? In the DNS you
/could/ have multiple domains referenced to one IP address, but with
WinNT/95/3.11, you can only technically refer to the computer as one
hostname. With NT, though, you can assign multiple IPs to a single NIC.

So if you wanted to have and on the same
server, you could theoretically have them both have A records in the DNS to
one IP, assign that to the NIC and have a web server.

However, the better solution would be to give a unique IP to the two
companies, give your server a hostname on your domain, open IIS and create
virtual servers on the two IP's.
