i bought this 'ASP for dummies..' book. All it says for ASP to fire is :-
- notepad to write asp codes & save as "xyz.asp"
- IIS or PWS
- IE4

this test page don't even connect to ODBC sources... when i did a simple xyz.asp and loaded it onto the webroot... the browser doesn't  seem to recognise the mime-type of "Text/asp"  and ask me to save to disk. any clues?

1. You have to install the asp extensions to the server. IIS4 has them built in, but PWS and IIS3 don't. You can download the asp files from the Microsoft site.

2. ASP is a cgi, so it must be placed in an executable virtual directory on the server.
