IIS5.1 setting permissions

Have to enter name and password to view website

I'm using FP2003 and IIS5.1 with sharepoint and FP2002 extensions on my laptop.

I've created a subweb under the default web. When I publish via FP i'm asked for name and password which makes sense.

However when I want to view my site in a browser, I'm also asked to enter my username and password. This isn't a major problem, but there must be a way around it.

I think I need to change permissions in IIS, I tried enabling anonymous users but this hasn't worked, can anyone tell me what I need to change?

Under Internet Information services/default website/directory security/edit/Click the box to enable anonymous access
