comment SQL service log on account
@Jeff: It does not need to be a new account. However, it is a best practice that the SQL Server service use it's own account.

comment Installing IIS on Windows 2003
I ended up re-installing windows and it worked after that. I just checked my CD, and it only has smtpsnap.dl_ (no .hl_ file). It should be noted that I also tried using several different Windows 2003 CDs, including the original CD and one with SP2 slipstreamed into it. Neither worked.

comment [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied
This could be a network issue. You may need to run a trace using something like Wireshark on the webserver to capture the packets. Then, when you experience one of these errors, look at the packets for that time and see if there is anything strange. (e.g. Outgoing packets without incoming packets, Packets being sent to the wrong host, etc.)

comment MS SQL Server slows down over time?
Growth by percentage usually isn't a good thing either. When you database becomes large, a 5% growth will be much larger than when the database first started off. 1MB is too small, but you should decide on a fixed MB growth rate based on the size and usage of your database.

comment MS SQL Server slows down over time?
If you run the same queries through Management Studio, do you see the same performance problems as if they are ran through the application? What makes the performance degradation stop or go away? Do you reboot the server? Is this a physical server or a VM? Does it have its own storage or is it part of a SAN?

comment Will Windows 2008 or Windows 7 interfere with a network of Windows 2003 servers
How would legacy applications affect this, and how does WINS and NETBIOS relate to this? Forgive me ... I have a solid, basic understanding of networking, but I'm not a network admin. I have pressed for specifics, but received little. I'll keep at it. Any idea where this fear that newer versions of Windows are going to take over the network might emanate from?

comment What is easiest no fail way to publish asp.net app?
Well, it sounds like you have a DNS issue, not an ASP.NET publishing issue. Is this web server internal to your LAN? If so, talk to whomever administers your DNS server.

What errors do you get back in the web browser? Is it a 500, a 404? Can you ping the DNS name?

comment Reporting Services authentication
Don't use anonymous access, but you need to go to the anonymous access page to enable Windows Authentication for the report manager. Having Windows Authentication enabled on the Report manager allows users to be authenticated using their windows credentials. Those credentials are then used by the report manager to control report authorization.
