Default using Scripting.FileSystemObject under IIS 5.1

Dear every body!
I have a problem of using scripting.FileSystemObject under IIS5.1 in windows XP Pro. if any body know, please help me!!!
My problem:
Such a very simple code like this:

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set a = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", True)
a.WriteLine("This is a test.")

When I using that code for VB6 Application, it run OK.
But when I put that code in to ASP file, it can not run.
I'm sure My IIS is runing and I can connect to a mdb file.
Please help me ASAP

many thanks

this will most likely be permissions problem trying to create file in c:
Set a = fso.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath("testfile.txt"), True)
that will create file in your web root. If that works then it will prove FileSystemObject is OK and you just need to sort out permissions to write to other folders.
