You can get more detail in my posts here:

I think the two people who responded to my thread hadn't read all the detail
of my initial post, because I think it was pretty obvious that it wasn't
anything obvious.  Too often, people make quick reflex replies based on the
first thing one reads in a textbook.  No, there were several problems, but
the real culprit was a specific file permission change somewhere deep.  I
don't remember where and I didn't document it as I went, because I was in
too much of a hurry to fix it to take notes.  I did manage to fix it without
bringing any services down except for a couple of IIS restarts, but to do it
I referenced a KB article on permissions for ASP on Windows2000 and I do
recall there was something informative there, that was helpful.

I'm curious to know the answer to this as well...
