file not found cfide administrator index.cfm

Adobe coldfusion 8
In a nutshell, we need to be able to use the http://cnn/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm address and we need CNN to be
able to find the cfide folder while my coldfusion pages are being processed. Since it is located in inetpub/wwwroot , its
not accessible in CNN. The folder may need to be moved to CNN or mapped in the CF administrator or the following
run. I tried copying the cfide folder to the linkit folder but it did not work. It may be that something else needs to be set
somewhere else too.
 You can access the administrator index if you localhost ip address.

Make a virtual directory in IIS that maps to the CFIDE folder and add that virtual directory under the cnn website.
Can you explain this in more detail with exact url to map to?
When you install ColdFusion it's asks where to put the CFIDE files.  Ussually ( by default ) it's c:\initpub\www\CFIDE

If you make a virtual dir \CFIDE to that folder it will work.
