ASP.NET Permission Writing to NT Event Log

Microsoft Please Help!!!

Can anyone out there give me a definitive explanation on EXACTLY what
rights an account needs to be able to both create and write to the NT
Event Log from ASP.NET in windows 2000 and 2003 server? I would like
to see a list of files and registry keys are required for the aspnet
account to perform this functionality...

This seems to be an issue on any machine that I install on... My event
log class looks exactly like this:

I have tried the following and can only seem to get my apps to write to
the log successfully if they run as an admin...

I have tried:

The full control registry permissions and subkeys as well as the create
source installer found in http://support.microsoft.com/?id=329291

Creating the event log source manually in the registry

Granting ASPNET full control of C:\WINDOWS\system32\config

This article says "The impersonation identity must have sufficient
privileges to create categories". It does not describe what privledges
are needed though?

This article says world should be able to write to the application
log... But that doesn't seem to work either...

Finally I read that you need to make aspnet run as system... That
doesn't seem like a security best practice either...

Any help would be appreciated!
