Proper perms on Content/Logs/SiteConfig on Windows 7

I just clean installed Windows 7 RTM and have copied over the dasblogce files.  For "aesthetics" reasons, I want the path to be /inetpub/wwwroot/Blog (and not dasblogce).  Anyway, as a result I don't use the VBScript file.  Besides, it wouldn't run anyway because I didn't enable IIS 6 back compatibility.  So I created the IIS app/vdir, set it up to use the default app pool and proceeded to give 'Network Service' modify permissions on Content/Logs/SiteConfig.  However when I went to do the same for the ASPNET account, I can't find it on my system.  Has this account been renamed in IIS7/Win7?  Anyway, I can read the blog just fine but I can't change any of the setttings.  There must be another account like ASPNET that I need to give modify perms to.  Any ideas?

In IIS 7 the app pools use the applicationpoolidentity. You'll have to give this account the appropriate right.

That did the trick.  Thanks!
