IIS Bandwidth Throttling

I need to limit bandwidth for certain websites.

I'm using IIS 5.1 on windows 2000 server, i have enabled QOS on the adaptor, enabled Bandwidth Throttling for the website, and tried different values such as 10 and 1024, restarted IIS, but still this does not limit the bandwidth.

I've also read it only limits static files, is this HTML and image files? (i need to limit JPGs)

I've never seen Bandwidth Throttling actually working on IIS, is it broken? does it even work?

What could i have overlooked?

In IIS 6.0, the Maximum bandwidth (in kilobytes per second) must be at least 1024 Kbps.

I would set the number at or above 1024 and then try to tax the server.  Here is an article on how to monitor bandwidth throtling.
