i have an asp.net application that uses windows authentication.
i installed IIS server 5.1 on my xp machine and it works great with the win authorization; however, i am unable to use "roles" because for some reason it does not synchronize with the active directory and i dont know how to get it to synchronize.
do you know what kind of configuration/settings i need for IIS to synchronize with the AD? when i go into the Web Site Administration Tool and look at the roles and users in roles in shows me no users. i did create the security groups in AD and added users to them but i do not see them in the Web Site Administration Tool.
thanks so much for your guidance.
i am currently getting this error:

i did follow joel's advice and did this:
<roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider"/>
