Microsoft Internet Information 5.0 Resources

Officially Internet Information Server has been integrated into Windows NT and Windows 2000 Professional and Server as "Web Services" and "Internet Information Services", versus continuing to be a part of the Microsoft BackOffice family. This allows almost any Windows 2000 platform to act as a web server in a intranet or internet environment. This integration makes setup very easy, and is a powerful way to share information.
