Securing iis by installing xp in a different folder
Posted on 2004-05-01
I am right in saying that this is not possible unless there is an existing xp installation already located in the C drive. For security reasons it is then possible to install another copy of xp in say H:/dppfddn/ which is supposed to make it hard for the hacker to find it. But then what happens to the other xp in the C drive. I have created the H:/dppfddn/ file by placing the hard disk in another machine but when I try to install xp into this directory on the original machine I can select the partition and select the drive H:/ but there is no way to select the dppfddn/ folder, the only choice I have is to overwrite the entire partition when I install xp.
In all the articles I have read about this issue they all mention this issue at the end rather than at the beginning. Does anyone know an article that gives clear instructionseft on this issue.
