Hi, Everyone,

In response to the request below, I've put up a short
overview of the Microsoft Personal Webserver.  It is
set up to view either online if you have IE5 or you can
download the PowerPoint presentation in a ZIP file.
I think this information will be of general interest.

If you view it with IE5, you can do a full-screen
slide show.

Note that this contains several screen displays
and is graphics-intensive.

You can get to it from my university site at:

Look in the first column under "Microsoft Personal
Web Server."
