I'm getting some 301 errors. All of the log lines show 'OPTIONS'

217.35.95.xxx - - [25/Jun/2002:11:50:22+0100] OPTIONS /memebersarea/goodies HTTP/1.1 301 335 - Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing Provider Cache Manager0 www.mysite.co.uk

Whats going on here?

OPTIONS is a HTTP method to usually just receive HTTP headers as response
(like the HEAD method, no objects or entity body data as with PUT POST GET TRACE)
it's used to determine webserver capabilities
