XP Home changing IWAM account details

I have managed to install IIS on XP Home by changing some of the config
settings so that the option was not hidden from List of available
components. We have done this for various clients who need local
websites on their XP Home PCs and it has worked fine.
However on my PC at home I have done the same thing and run into
trouble. I can run .aspx pages but not .asp I get a HTTP 500 Internal
Server error. I changed the security down to LOW and they ran so I was
told that the problem was with the IWAM account and I should set it to
have local admin rights.
However I am used to 2000 and cannot seem to be able to get to edit
this account anywhere. My Users Console on Control Panael just shows 2
accounts Mine (Admin) and a Guest. If I go to add new account and add
IWAM_[my laptop name] it says Account already exists. So how do I get
to view it and how to get to edit it. My anon user account in IIS is
set to IUSR_[my laptop] so I am not sure whether it is the IWAM or IUSR
account I should be editing but anyhow I cant get to access rights and
privelleges for either anyway.
Please can someone help me.
Thanks in advance

Rob
