Don't run websites in IIS from SUBST drives

It looks like this causes an issue. I have a folder that I SUBSTed to another drive, and when I tried to set it up as a virtual directory, IIS just laughed at me, saying that I have no permissions to do that. When I tried it using the real path, it worked like a charm. The permissions were the same in both cases, of course.
