We have just recently completed a migration from 2000 SBS to 2008 server (64bit) (quite a leap).
Most things have gone relatively smoothly, apart from the migration of the website.
Bear in mind that I know next to nothing about web coding, and up until about a month ago I had bearly looked at IIS!
The guy who originally setup the website on the original server is no longer available to help and its up to muggins here to get it all working again!
I have setup the virtual directories, set up the 32 bit ODBC DSN's for MSACCESS to point to where the appropriate *.mdb files are, set up anonamous athentication, disabled ssl (the pages themselves handle authentication for the site so im told) set up the redirection in IIS7 to point to the correct virtual directory.
 Each of these little hurdles I over came through much research on google etc, but now I seem to have hit a brick wall. When attempting to access the page on the server through IE (just because its giving me more info than browsing externally to the page '500 error' etc...) I get the following error:-
error '80004005'
/bottom.asp, line 18
Line 18 in the script is as follows "select * from t000","dsn=cvb_sys"
The site as far as I know just uses html and asp and I really am struggling to sort it out now so any help I can get would be greatly appriciated!!!!!
