you need to check the NTFS permissions of the wwwroot folder. for an
anonymous web application to create a folder, the IUSR_ServerName account
needs write access. check these with WIndows Explorer - right click the
folder, get properties and go to the security tab.
If you don't have a security tab, and you're running Windows XP, you need to
turn off simple file sharing - under tools->folder options
