I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

can you add a website?  what server version?
dthansenAuthor Commented:

Can't add a website.  The only option in the 'Add' category is a virtual server.

This is a Windows 2003 server, running IIS6.

I've found the IIS.log, and there do seem to be some 'Failed" operations during the install.  I hope this will provide a little more information regarding my issue.

do you have admin privileges on the server?  Ensure BITS is enabled and running.  I would run again with filemon to see if you're getting denied.  Are you installing to C:\ or do you have any mapped drives, can you tell me anything about your environment?
