Here's one way you can do it.

Download the Beer House Starter Kit. Get it up and running in the default VS2005 directory with the default MDF file data connection. Never change anything on this site!

Make a copy on which you can make changes. Make changes one at a time. When your new site stops working you can look at the original and figure out the problem.

The use of symetric encryption is a design choice. Change it to use clear text passwords if that's OK with you. Simple.

The bigger problem is that a NET 1.1 database typically had passwords as fields in a standard table. But in NET 2.0 the password and all the other user information are all in one long string field called PropertyValuesString in the aspnet_Profile table.

I suspect that someone has written a utility to help with this conversion. I'd Google it.
