WindowsServices >> Customizing home page layout

I am the administrator of a Sharepoint team website, thus I have the
administrator role assigned to myself. When I try to go into customizing the
home page layout and move some columns around I get this error (which is very
vague, but I believe it's got something to do with security).

Error







Unable to change homepage layout

An error occurred while trying to save the changes to the homepage. Please
try again.

If this problem persists, please contact your administrator.

Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint.

If I go to the server itself and log in as Administrator I can successfully
change the layout.

What can I do to make it possible to be able to change the web page layout
myself? I have subwebs for the different departments, and the department
heads are all administrator to their own pages - they need to be able to do
this as well.

WindowsServices >> Customizing home page layout Something isn't "standard" about this installation...

Is this web server also a domain controller?

WindowsServices >> Customizing home page layout I don't think I can do that in SQL Server 2000
