All files and folders in the document root should be owned and writeable
by the web server user. (Not sure how you do this on Windows).

I Don't know about WinXP

From Win2k try "My Network Places -> "Add Network Place" and put in the
URL of your WebDav resource.

Look in the access_log file for something like: - - [19/Mar/2003:08:26:49 -0800] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 200 0 - - [19/Mar/2003:08:26:49 -0800] "PROPFIND /manual HTTP/1.1"
207 819 - - [19/Mar/2003:08:26:54 -0800] "OPTIONS /manual HTTP/1.1"
200 0 - - [19/Mar/2003:08:26:54 -0800] "PROPFIND /manual HTTP/1.1"
207 93988

What does the error log say?

What does the access log say?

					Hope this helps...
