What/where/how do I need to configure the permissions in my IIS (in WinXP Pro) such that I can update my pages (using FP), and allow Internet users to read the pages, yet prevent anyone from changing them or adding malicous code?

firewalls, NTFS permissons, FP permissions and roles, stong passwords
and so on are the route you need to take.
