Error: Permission Denied
I'm new to NT and to Links, but I've been successful (finally) in getting Links installed and running -- almost.

When I try to do a function that points to the .db files, such as add a link, I get this error:

Error Message : error in add_record. unable to open database: d:/webshare/wwwroot/cgi-bin/links/admin/data/categories.db.
Reason: Permission denied
Script Location : D:\webshare\wwwroot\cgi-bin\links\admin\admin.cgi
Perl Version : 5.00503

I assume that there's something set incorrectly in my directory/file permissions, but I've not been able to figure it out. Any hints, tips, clues?
