Default Server Application Unavailable

Hi - I followed the instructions for Implementing Basic Authentication in Chapter 20 of the Beginning ASP.Net 1.0 with VB.Net book by Wrox and then tried to load the default.aspx page in my browser (default.aspx is in my virtual directory) but got the error page - "Server Application Unavailble...The web application you are attempting to access...Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure can be found in the application event log of the web server."

The event log entry associated with this error gave this message:
["Failed to execute request because the worker process account does not have access to the IIS Metabase. This may be fixed by running "aspnet_regiis -ga <account-name>" for the worker process account. However, there are security implications of running "aspnet_regiis -ga".

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp."]

I tried to use the "aspnet_regiis -ga" command but it returned a message statint "no such user" when I entered my correct username, which has a space between first name and last name - I also tried to remove the space from my User account name and the command line call, but that did not work either. Is there an ASP.NET administrator GUI to manipulate users and authentication? I need to get some help on this issue asap please.

I have IIS 5.0 and Microsoft.Net Framework 2.0.
My IIS is configured to run ASP.NET 2.0.

Thank You.
