Default IIS and Dreamweaver MX

I have just started to learn Dreamweaver and am reading the Wrox publication "Beginning Dreamweaver MX"

I have installed DW MX successfully, and have installed Microsoft's IIS Web Server. The book recoomends you test the installation to ensure the ASP is running, by opening the web browser and typing http://localhost/localstart.asp into the address box. Whenever I do this I receive the following message:-


" The requested URL could not be retrieved

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://localhost/localstart.asp

The following error was encountered:

Unable to determine IP address from host name for localhost
The dnsserver returned:

Name Error: The domain name does not exist.
This means that:

 The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL.
 Check if the address is correct.

Your cache administrator is webmaster.

I have checked Admin Tools / Services in Windows XP ( I have Windows XP Pro) and have confirmed that the status for the World Wide Web Publishing item is showing as "Started".

Is there anything else I can do to get the thing working?????
