PWS and windows 98 and visual interdev

I installed PWS 4.0 on my machine running windows 98 but when I go into Visual Interdev and select New Web Project it brings up a form with a combobox that asks What server do you want to use? and nothing is there.  Shouldn't pws be listed there?  If not what should be?

The server name is the hostname for your computer, if you have one. In Start->Settings->ControlPanel->Network, you should have a TCP/IP component. Highlight the TCP/IP component and select properties. Go to DNS Configuration. You will see a "Host:" field - that is your server name.

You can also use localhost as the server name, since it is always defined as the local machine.

If you want to leave DNS disabled, you can use localhost. If you want to enable it, just make up a hostname for your machine and a domain name (anything.com).
