Developing on 2003 Server

Brad - how's that list coming for tweaks to Server 2003?

I've found an odd thing - When I use IE to browse a site (even one served on my computer) it's slow as anything.  But when I go to Outlook and browse in there (or in VS.NET or wherever) i can surf just fine.  Not sure if this is a 2003 thing, a firewall thing (i don't think so), an IE6 thing, or what.  Anyone else ran into this problem?

Some other annoyances - Intellipoint software doesn't work on 2003 server... I'm unable to use all the cool buttons on my mouse.  same thing with my keyboard.

Sorry, I had some personal things blow up, and never got around to the list. I'm not sure when I will.

Oddly enough, I don't have any of the problems you do. I use a Microsoft mouse and keyboard, and all the buttons work. I didn't even need to install any special drivers: they simply work. IE browsing is now slow (although I disabled the super high security mode that's the IE on W2K3).

That should read "IE browsing is NOT slow".
