C:\Inetpub\wwwroot is just the physical path on your computer for the Default Web Site home directory that appears in IIS. If you want to run your application in IIS, publish it to this directory.

With VS 2005, the ASP.NET Development Server is installed by default, and can run file-system Web sites installed else where in your file-system. It simply serves pages to browser requests on your local computer.

But, yes, if you want to use IIS as your Web server, publish your apps to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot.
