I need to make some changes in the machine.config file in the framework\config directory for .Net v1.1.4322.  Do I need to reboot the server for the changes to take place or can I just do an iisreset?

You don't need to do either.

The .Net framework registers for change notification on its configuration files.

If you change settings in the machine.config file *all* app domains will recycle automatically and pick up the new settings.
