So I installed Windows 2003 and I was playing around with IIS and even
with 'anonymous access' checked under the security tab of the web
profile I still have to add the 'everyone' read attribute to the local
website folder to allow that particular site to be accessible  through
IIS.
I have quite a bit of experience with adding IIS sites in Windows 2003
and I never had to do this before.  Why is this the case? both
instances had SP1 installed but for some reason this new Win 2003
enterprise server will only allow my IIS website to be browsable only
if I added 'everyone' and 'read' permissions added to to the local
folder holding the files.
Am I missing something here?

TIA
