I just installed IIS on winxp pro & the first time config is horrible - you have to go into computer management, click on IIS & it will hang for ages while it configures it & it doesn't even tell you what it is doing. I thought it had crashed, but luckily I left it while I picked up my car & it was working when I got back an hour later.

How can I tell what version of IIS I am running & where can I get the new version from if there is one? The one I installed is off the windows xp CD so I assume it will be old.

2 more things I encountered:
what is the purpose of the smtp part of IIS and how do I enable ftp (there is nothing about it in the management console IIS configuration)
