I am running IIS 5.1 on win 2k. I have a folder sitting on my desktop as virtual directory in IIS. Can I make this directory default - so when someone types in the IP address, goes straight to the directory? I looked under IISFAQ and didnt find anything relative. 2) Whenever I type IP address of my server, it throws login/pwd box - how do I get rid of that?

First, if you are on W2K you're not running IIS 5.1 it's 5.0
The 2nd problem is usually caused when the web server user account IUSR_computername doesn't have permissions granted to the default web site \InetPub\wwwroot
You can fix this in the IIS service manager or from the security tab in windows explorer.
For the 1st problem, you could make default.asp the 1st default document for your root web and add a default.asp page of <% response.redirect "/myfolder/" %>
