I have a new computer following the crash of my old one and I have no inetpub folder, and I can't find IIS!  Why is that? And how do I fix it?  I want to rebuild some virtual sites that I had on my old wwwroot, so what do I do? Does this make any sense?

I'm running Vista Home Premium 64-bit if that has anything to do with it.

Thanks,
John

Well if it's brand new, IIS won't even be installed yet.
Here's an easy guide http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-to-install-iis-on-windows-vista/

Thanks, I don't remember installing IIS in any of my other computers, so this is reassuring information. How about the inetpub folder? Shouldn't that be there? And if it should be there, should I be concerned about the integrity of my OS in other areas as well? If not, how do I create a functioning inetpub/wwwroot folder set?
Thanks,
John

Inetpub  and wwwroot definitely belong to IIS, so they'll be there once you install IIS.  99% of people running Vista don't want to run a web server, they just want to look at the interwebz.  That's why it's not installed by default.  That means you're in the top percentile ;>
