IIS and 404 error pages

just tinkering with IIS and have configured a custom 404 error page, which is easily done within IIS config.
so if i go to www.blah.co.uk/pants.htm it will redirect to www.blah.co.uk/404.htm (as pants.htm doesn't exist).

however, is it possible for it to the display the 404 error but not actually redirect to the 404.htm?

for example, if you go to www.bbc.co.uk/dfsfsdfsdf, it displays a 404 error, but doesn't actually redirect away from the original (wrong) URL.

actually i've just tested it again and it seems to be doing what is required.
guess it a bug causing it not to work previously
