When I install Web Developer 2010 Express it activates IIS for me, fine. So I have content on my LInux box, so I use /www with folder under it to host the various projects I work on. I see IIS supports vhosts so that is helpful.
So what permissions are needed to make folders and point domains to the appropriate place?
Then I can retire the Linux box to other tasks.

Sorry, I am not quite understand what you want to do. The following articles are account permissions and hosting related, hope helps:

I've been sort of thrown into the 'deep end' when it comes to IIS (very little experience with it) and we are looking to setup a new webserver (Windows 2008/IIS 7.0). Our current webserver is Windows 2003/IIS 6.0. I've been looking at this site to try and
source some info to best advise how to migrate everything across to the new server. E.g - websites, virtual directories, webfiles etc.
Just wondering if someone can lead me in the right direction or provide any point form info on the process I need to undertake? I've tried the webdeploy/package process but that hasn't seemed to be successful at all.
I don't really want to have to do them manually if there's an automated way as I'm talking about 100 websites.
Any advise/assistance much appreciated.

MSDeploy is the way to go here ..

Thanks Tom. I have been reading up (as stated no/very little experience in with IIS) and have also tried the "msdeploy' tool.
I got an issue when I tried this cmd:
C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy>msdeploy -verb:getDependencies -source
Error: Object of type 'metaKey' and path '1m/w3svc/#siteidentifier' cannot be created.
Error: The metabase key '/lm/w3svc/146173708' could not be found.
Error: The system cannot find the path specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800
Error count: 1.

I'd suggest you run
Metabase explorer to verify that the metabase key '/lm/w3svc/146173708' does exist. It is recommended you open a new thread in our Web
Deployment Tool forum. In this way, more community members will be able to see it and discuss it. Thanks.

Thanks Leo, I downloaded and installed that toolkit for IIS 6.0 and no metabase key '/lm/w3svc/146173708' is there.?? I will open up a new thread.
