    Default Giving ASP.NET permissions... how in Win 2000?

    Hi, I&#039;m trying to install an ASPNET application, and in order for it to work, I apparently need to give permissions to the "ASPNET user".<BR><BR>I don&#039;t know .NET from a hole in the ground, and I don&#039;t think I need to for this, but I can&#039;t seem to do what it asks. The instructions I have been provided below are all I&#039;m given, and I don&#039;t think they&#039;re right for my Win 2000 machine.<BR><BR>My first clue was that when I go to the specified folders and right click, there is no Security Tab, only "General", "Web Sharing" and "Sharing". The "sharing" folder seemed to share some semblance to the instructions I was provided with, but it didn&#039;t work so I&#039;m not convinced. Also, I&#039;ve never set up a .NET user - is this something I would need to do somewhere?<BR><BR>If these are stupid questions, my apologies in advance.
