SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services

Today I took part in installing SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services. One quirky thing. I had the default website stopped. I had another website running on port 80. Reporting Services wouldn’t install. I couldn’t run both websites on the same port (it was internal, no DNS set to have subdomains). I had to start up the default website on port 8080, and then Reporting Services installed. I then stopped the default website, but to my surprise, the virtual directories for Reporting Services were under my second website running on port 80. WTF are they checking for? My guess is a website that has a default directory for c:inetpubwwwroot – Everything else on my second website was the same as the default except for that. It would be nice if they let you choose where you wanted to put the website, like if you already had a website running on IIS, just to choose which website you want the virtual directories installed.
