IIS 4 and symbolic links

I have a NTserver 4 running IIS 4. Classically, everything
that one publishes has to be under

c:\inetpub\wwwroot

(or something similar). But now that c: drive is
full. How do I add more stuff to the site?

Under UNIX, I'd use a symbolic link from the wwwroot
directory to another drive with more space. How can
I do that under WinNT/IIS ?

1. open the IIS management console (program files, windows NT4 option pack, internet information server, internet service manager).
2. in the left "window" find "default web site" and right click.
3. choose "new" and then "virtual directory"
4. type the name you want to give it (click next)
5. select the directory (browse), it can be anywhere, also on D:, E: or whatever.
