Silly Sharepoint Services question...

I just installed Sharepoint 2.0 on a W2003 server.  No problems, but I was never prompted for Authentication options, and once it's installed, I see nothing in the "Programs" menu to create a site or anything.  Am I missing something?  I'm just trying to use it to create a root Intranet site for our comapny, and then give Managers permissions to create sub-sites for their Departments.  Thanks.

SharePoint isn't a "program" it's a web site, essentially.  Read the WSS Administrator's guide:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/wss/2/all/adminguide/en-us/default.mspx

This way you will know what you installed, and if you installed it correctly and how to use it!

Sorry, I guess that sounded pretty naive.  I know that.  The strange thing is, is that my server meets all the prerequisites, and I downloaded the latest version of Sharepoint from Microsoft (SPS2.0).  However, when installing it, after I accept the license agreement and which version I want, that's it.  It installs, but never prompts me for a domain account, or authentication options, or anything else I'm "supposed" to be prompted for.  Ideas?

I reinstalled IIS and SharePoint Services.  I can access the Admi. site by going to http://myservername:5888, however I can NOT seem to get to a default configuration page!  When I try and access http://myservername, I get a "Page Under Construction"

How did the admin site get configured at port 5888?  Usually it would install at port 8081?  What happens when you go to START > Administrative Tools > Sharepoint Central Administration?

There's nothing there.  I just uninstalled IIS, ASP.Net, and Sharepoint Services.  I then reinstalled IIS (Without Frontpage Extensions) and ASP.NET.  Then rebooted.  Started installing Sharepoint 2.0, and I still get a "Your virtual server is running Frontpage 2002 extensions.  To upgrade later, click, ok.....".  As soon as the install is "done", I get this when it tries to conifgure the default site.  I feel like I'm "almost" there, but something (Frontpage extensions?) is holding me back from a good install.  This server is just a "Services" server which runs Veritas and Symantec, nothing else, so I can do whatever it akes to get this running...Anyways, here's the error I'm getting:

Setup Errors
There are errors in Windows SharePoint Services setup.

Extend Virtual Server : Windows SharePoint Services has detected that this virtual server is running SharePoint Team Services or FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions. To extend this virtual server with Windows SharePoint Services, you must move the site content to a different virtual server, and then remove SharePoint Team Services or FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions from this virtual server. For more information about moving data from SharePoint Team Services or FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, see the Administrator's Guide for Windows SharePoint Services.

How about following the administrator's guide that I linked above.  Specifically the section about preparing your server:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/wss/2/all/adminguide/en-us/stsc01.mspx

And then into the installation section.  This is not something that can be explained in 3 or 4 steps as you are tyring to have me do here.

I did all that Jeff.  Thanks anyways.  I found a workaround on another forum, which was creating a new website, changing the port on the default site, then changing the port on my new site to 80.  Restarted IIS, and that fixed it.
