The interesting part to this is that IIS (using NTLM) lets you
use your NT permissions to access files (it works with basic authentication
as well, but it's a bit more painful).
IIS doesn't run as Administrator IIRC (it runs as IIS_ANONUSER or something)
so it must have some funny way of doing this kind of thing.
Actually on my 2K machine it runs as System (which is not admin), and if I
use NTLM it basically su's to me..
