Hmmm, I just downloaded 2.0.3 for this NT workstation yesterday.  Previously
I did not have Jigsaw on the system where I am now experiencing the problem.
I tried it again using PassDirectory with a directory under my Jigsaw\Jigsaw
directory as the pass-target.  That worked fine in all respects.  When I
changed the pass-target to a directory on the same local partition but not
under this directory I get the following error:
Document not found
The document http://coolgraphics:8001/ is indexed but not available.
The server is misconfigured.
With subsequent tries coming from the document root instead of the

I am logged in as the Administrator for the Workstation - so access
shouldn't be a problem (as this is a personal development system, I don't
log in as anyone else) - and the drive is a local partition.

Is there anything else I can add that might help?

There was a problem in Jigsaw 2.0.2 and earlier with modified root
resource. However, a virtual host should not disappear. However, if the
PassDirectory target is no longer available (or you don't have the right
to access it), then it will be deleted. If your directory was a connected
drive, unavailable at the time you tried to access the URI, it may be the
