    As you know XP is a workstation OS it was never intented to run more than 1 little test site at a time.<BR>So in order to prevent people from trying IIS 5.1 does not even allow you to add sites. <BR>THERE IS ONLY 1!<BR><BR>If you want to host more than 1 site you will need to run Windows 2000 Server/Advanced Server OR Windows.NET Server/Corp Server this will allow you to run as many vertual servers on 1 IIS box as you want. The theory is that an IIS5 machine can handle &#062;500 sites. THAT IS A LOT!!! IIS 6/Windows.NET will be able to double that, or so they say.
