    IIS stands for Internet Information Server. This is a microsoft web server that comes with windows NT and windows 2000. You can save your files anywhere on the drive. If you do not save your files in the default directory (C:\inetpub\wwwroot) you will need to create a virtual directory. This will map the directory into IIS so that they will be public directories on your website.

    Any web server can interpret HTML, but if you are using ASP, you will need IIS.

    Or if your just learning, and you don't want to have to splash out on win2k, you can run ASP on win98.

    On the win98 CD you can find a folder called PWS, install this. This is called Persnal Web Server, is a very cut down version of IIS. All it really does is let you run ASP files when acess using it's set IP address which is 127.0.0.1.

    Thus should be ok but bear in mind it only runs ASP2.0.

    Also, a decent free ASP host is http://www.brinkster.com

    Hope this helps
