I'm a novice at this stuff, but trying to learn as quickly as possible.  

We have SBS 2003, and don't use many, if any of the functionality beyond basic file storage/server.  

I recently saw the internal company website link and decided to try it out.  I made a very simple Publisher website, published it to a folder, copied the folder to the server's desktop, then pointed the "companyweb" to the folder on the desktop.

I went back to my workstation, typed in (the IP the companyweb site showed) and was taken to a basic site that had a link to "my company website".  When I clicked on that, I *swear* a pop-up asking for my username and password came up... but I cannot honestly tell you I cancelled that box or not.   Regardless, I then typed in "Companyweb'... and viola! Up popped the simple website I'd made!

I was super excited, turned to another laptop in the office, but no luck.  That too pulls up the basic site with the "my company website" link, but when you click on the my company website link, or type in company web, it either a) simply says the page cannot be displayed, or b) sends you to Bing for possible websites.

I tried on another computer and had the same result.  (All three are using XP Pro SP 3 & IE8).

I tried turning off Anonymous login, then turning it back on... Neither seem to  help.

Any thoughts?
