ASP Scripts permissions error after install 2003 Server

P: n/a
Here's the scenerio:
HAD: Entire Windows 2000 domain multiple servers Internal Web Server -
Windows 2000 NAS Server - Windows 2000
Internal Web Application (On Web server) utilizing .ASP scripts to
access shared directories through mapped drives on NAS Server. (And
yes, I know UNC paths should have been used, but I didn't actually
write this, just trying to follow someone else)
UPGRADED: All servers (including Web Server) except NAS Server to
Windows 2003 Server.
NAS Server remained on W2K Server.
PROBLEM: For some reason when ASP scripts are ran on the web server
(2003) they cannot access data on the NAS server (2000).
What special permissions have to be setup on either the 2003 and/or
2000 server to allow access to shared directories via an ASP script.
I'm at the end of my rope on this one, I have researched IIS 5.0 Worker

Process Isolation Mode, which we were in, and I have tried to switch
out of and still no luck. I have checked and re-checked all the NTFS
permissions on the NAS server shared directory and everything that I
beleive is supposed to be there is allowed modify access.
OTHER NOTE: It looks like most of the scripts are utilizing one of our
"IUSR_" accounts in the directory security within IIS 6.0 and I have
double-checked the password is correct and that this user is a member
of the IIS_WPG group who incidentally also has NTFS permissions to this

Any Thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
