Took your advice John and did a ..."Back it up, Tear it down
(Uninstall) and
bring IIS4 up fresh" routine and all working well once I disabled
the Index Server.

Now get a 405 error out of a Perl script rather than the 501 Not
Supported error however. I've heard that I have a better chance
with Perl stuff using 4.0. Is that true? Any others had success
running Perl scripts with M$ 44? (44 Magnum stands for NT4.0 and
IIS4 - fast guns shooting from the hip and missing all the time).
