Configure Server Extensions Error

Environment: W2K SP3 and .NET 1.1

I'm trying to set my machine up to do some Web-form development but am unable to
successfully configure the IIS Extensions. When I click Finish at the end of the
Wizard I get a dialog telling me "Cannot create folder "_vti_pvt'". I suspect it
may be a permissions problem, but even if it is I don't know how to fix it.
On the 'Create Windows Groups' page of the Wizard I've both specified 'Create
local machine Groups' and not specified it. On the 'Access Control' page I
specifiy 'Administrators'. On the 'Mail Server' page I specify 'No, I'll do it
later'.

Bradley:

Thanks for the response.

As it turns out, for reasons unknown to me, my inetpub/wwwroot directory was
read-only (for Administrator). Once I changed the permissions everything ran as
advertised.
