Hi, does anybody have any knowledge of installing and deploying webdav on sbs 2008 64 bit?

I would like to publish mapped drives/docs for my clients via sharepoint.

there are articles on server 2008 but not on sbs 2008 from what I can see,

Thanks for your help!

WSS has its own WebDAV authoring mechanism and its best you DO NOT turn on WebDAV on IIS level (which is known to interfere with SharePoint),

If you want to map the SharePoint Document Library as a Network drive, make sure Web Client Service is running on the client machine.
