DisableLoopbackCheck fix

I was listening to Todd Klindt's netcast 50 this morning and he mentioned that DisableLoopbackCheck is not the correct approach for allowing your SharePoint servers to see themselves (needed if crawling).  I have been doing this on my server installation and need to review my approach.

MS KB on disabling loopback using either approach.  DisableLoopback was introduced by MS to reduce prevention attacks.  As SharePoint needs to crawl itself and it's pretty nice to have a local browser for A records/renamed resources, I need to disable loopback however, the method of specify what to disable is definately more preferable.
