I can't publish to my service provider. I keep getting the endless prompt for user name and password when I try. One of the cures, according do MS article Q168818 is to go to the root web and then alter permissions. No matter how often I re-install FP98, the <root> web never appears in the "open existing web" panel, so the "permissions" option is greyed out, so I can't alter any permissions, so I can't publish. I've been trying for 4 weeks to publish this web, and I'm time constrained. I don't know if this is a hard problem, but to me it's worth the whole 200 points in one hit.
