How can I install a web site in win 2003 web editon?
Other computers within the network need to browse the site. Upload or save files and aps.net application on the site.

Setting up a basic Web Server on your 2003 Server is fairly easy.

First you need a name for the site (unless you want to use the Server Name).

This would need to go in your DNS Server as an Address (A) or Alias (CNAME) record. The Address used should point to your web server, the name can be pretty much anything you like (within reason).

After that, either alter the Default Web Site, or create a new Web Site on the server to fill the need. If you use a new site you will also want to set HTTP Headers (General Properties and the Advanced button (Web Site identity). Here you add the name you made along with an IP address on the server (same one you used in DNS) and generally port 80.

For uploading and saving files to the site - how do you want them to be able to do it? Both FTP and Network Shares are perfectly reasonable options in your situation.

Remember that unless you want them to logon you must give the anonymous user NTFS permissions to atleast read the files on the site. Then for ASP.NET applications the ASPNET machine account requires permissions over the files (depending on exactly what you want to do).

Without knowing what you're actually looking for that's about all I can give you at the moment.
