How to resolve issue... Amazon ec2, elastic IP setup with Route 53 not working?

view full story

http://serverfault.com – In this post it says its best to use CNAME only for Ec2 / route 53 setup: EC2/Route53: How do I assign my new domain name to an instance?. However, I added: *.mysite.org. CNAME ec2-174-129-38-xxx.compute-1.amazonaws.com. ...to my Route 53 DNS config and *www.*mysite.org works but mysite.org does not and the site 301's to non-www (mysite.org) so essentially nothing works. Am I missing something? I guess I DO need an A record to the elastic IP? (HowTos)
