IIS 5.1

I have IIS 5.1 installed on a windows xp pro SP2 machine.  I have set the root directory on my I: partition and set the ntfs permissions on that partition to administrators and system only.  When I try to load the webpage I get the not authorized to view this page message.  With the permissions set as they are, shouldn't a username and password box come up instead?  What am I missing?

If you haven't already done so, remove the restrictions and make sure you can see the website in that location.  If you can, see 'How to set required NTFS permissions and user rights for an IIS 5.0 Web server' at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=271071

I can see it fine without the restrictions in place.  I had used IIS before with the same restrictions and I was challenged with the password box.  Now I'm not.  Just wondering if there is a setting of an .htaccess type file I need to put in--something like that.

There is, but I'm not completely certain it's the same in IIS 5.1 with WinXP as it is with IIS5/Win2k Server or IIS6/Win2k3 Server (which I'm more familiar with).  However, we can try it and see . . .

Go to Internet Information Services, right click your website and select Properties.  In the website properties box, select the Directory Security tab and beside 'Anonymous access and authentication control' select 'Edit'.   This opens the Authentication Methods box.  I presume you don't want to allow Anonymous access, so make sure that's unchecked.   Under Authenticated access, check the box beside Integrated Windows authentication.
