Perhaps you have to "soften" it? <eg>

<title>How to convert your Windows Server 2003... to a Workstation!</title>
http://www.msfn.org/win2k3/ie.htm

BTW I think you are more likely to find an answer in a newsgroup which
specializes in your OS. E.g. there is likely to be more common knowledge
about IE there than about your OS here. Cross-posting my reply with
the complete thread for your convenience.


Good luck

Re: there was an unexpected error with your zone settings. unable

Robert,
I ended up turning the IIS Enhanced security ON, then logged in with a local
admin account instead of a domain account, and it let me add sites. Not sure
why.

Thanks for responding.

Steve
