If you are not using Windows NT, you cannot do it... If you are, in your WinNT/Help folders are the "error" templates.  Edit the ones that you want to be the way you want them...

Hi.
   Not sure if this is what you want to do, but you might (should) download from micrsoft the NT Option Pack. Why? It upgrades IIS3.0 to IIS4.0.

(Yeah? So who cares?!)
Well, with IIS4.0 you can have (like IIS3) mulltiple web sites that are hosted. BUT, (with IIS4.0), you can now have a DIFFERENT error message for EACH DIFFERENT WEBSITE. And trust me - it's VERY VERY VERY SIMPLE to do. IIS4.0 has a different GUI, which is USER FRIENDLY. Just click on the website you have - by that i mean, you select the PROPERTIES for the website listed - when you see it, it makes COMPLETE sence. Then, once it's started listing all the properties, one of them is called
"HTTP HEADERS" (you can't miss it), and there, you can set the what page you want to show, for whatever error comes up ... *simple as pie!*

(OK! Where do i get this NT Option Pack from, eh?)

Check that joint out, baby.
