In IIS7, I have added an IISUSER account, as a standard user.

In IIS6, they were a Guest user and I attached them to a web site via the Properties and security tab.

How do I attach the IISUSER to a website using IIS7? And make sure it is the right account type as the guest user in iis6?

thanks.

Thanks for that.
But it says...
" If no anonymous user account is configured for a Web site, IIS can be configured to automatically use the application pool identity. "
 
What if I want to configure anonymous user account for the website, how is that done?
which is better? more secure?

Without making any changes, I get this error:
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)  
 However, I am using sQL Server 2000 and it allows connections with my other windows 2000 web server.
Won't windows 2008 allow me to connect to a windows 2000 sql server database?
AS per the above  link:
I typed that line in and it locked up my computer.
So I manually edited the applicationHost file and put in the IISUSER and it said I have invalid credentials.
Doesn't anyone know how to do this?
All I want to do  is setup whatever account is needed to allow users to user the website and connect to my sql server database, which is opened to my IISUser and works great with my windows 2000 server.
Please help.
