Why can't the project types be interchangeable?
Different architecture. Web Sites are basically just folders on disk, while Web Applications have a central project file. Each type has its own pros and cons.

If this still doesn't make sense, you need to povide lots more details about your setup and actual problem.
Again: I don't have the book, so I don't know if this is supposed to be a web app or not. You also haven't answered my questions about IIS versus Visual Studio, setup, folders, the way you browse to the site, where you get the error and so on, so I can't help you here without that info
