url rewrite

I know very little about this subject but I'd like to know more.

Windows 7 Pro - iis 6.1

What do I need to install or configure to use a web.config file for localhost?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply

1. I didn't find a web.config file anywhere in the inetpub folder
2. I did however find it in a folder outside webroot that i had named "older" and it appears to be a backup copy of several websites.
3. I found a note in it that says (paraphrasing)  : You need the Rewrite Module for IIS 7 (http://www.iis.net/download/URLRewrite) installed before enabling URL rewriting
4. I installed that and now all is swell!

I'm wondering if it disappeared when I installed and cloned a new C drive earlier this year - the only other issue from that was that Sql Server's master DB had missing something or other and needed to be reinstalled.
so this might be the second issue.

your comment made me search the entire C drive to find it ...
thanks
