When I request a page from the mysql server on localhost it works the first time
The second time I get: Error Type: Provider (0x8000FFFF) Catastrophic failure
The Third Time the page doesn't load and I have to restart iis.
I am not sure what info is needed to resolve this problem but if you need anything let me know.
I have read the Microsoft article about the catostrophic failure and I am running windows 2k with sp3 in accordance with that article.

OH sometimes the third time I get:
Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01FB)
An exception occurred: 'my_conn.Open'
/test.asp, line 4

And then the 4th time the page doesn't load.
