So Brian (or anyone else on the list);

Is there a method in IIS4 to give someone FP extensions on a sub web
without that person being in the NT SAM database? If not then I imagine
you have a groups of users in a local group that have very restricted
rights? Can you give me an example. I have made sure the machine is NOT a
domain controller, backup controller, etc, just a plain server. I really
do not want to have several thousands of domain users running around trying
to manage. I wished that NT had a reality check on managing users and a
directory method that was logical.

I am looking to change to IIS4, but do not want to set up groups and
permissions to a directory structure in the OS for simple web publishing.
