iis7 - permissions for users

Hi

I've created a new user, and given it remote desktop access.
However when I open IIS7 it asks me to connect, but when i try it doesn't let me in (even with administrator login)

what do i need to do ?
it would be good to know how to lock down sites and only give permission to different ones

silly question... did you install IIS7?  IIS7 is not installed by default, you have to enable this ROLE...
