If you don't have any functioning pages in your iis root that are the default documents (root properties -> documents tab) you'll likely get this error.

I often just set my development machine up so that I can browse the directory listing and remove all but one bogus default documents in the documents list. Make it something like junk.html. You have to have one in there, just make it one you are not likely to use. Then you'll get a directory listing of your root website files and folders. Then you can at least confirm that IIS is functioning.
