Yeah basically on an IIS server you have a default www group that you can
use because it has read only permissions, if you need to add a user just go
to administrative tools on the server and then computer management if not in
a domain or active directory users and groups if the server is a member of a
domain.  Once you are in the control panel for adding users and groups you
will want to find the default www user which in 2000 i believe is named
IISxxxx and you can use that user or create new users with passwords and
then add them to the IIS group which by default gives minimal privlidges to
web users.  I hope this helps, let me know if you get stuck or dont
understand something k?
