Everyone bitches about IIS being a horrid security hole, but if you manage it right, it's a great webserver. (Note: I can't manage it "right" yet, but I'm at least not serving a lil' code red =) but I'll still do what I can if you have more questions about it.
You could always give Apache a try if you don't mind editing a text file to configure it. Although it's still not as stable on Windows as on *nix, I've been running it for 3 years and have never had any problems with it.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
