Default HTTP Error 404 Problem in ASP.NET

We had an old site with a static 404 page that worked fine. I've created a new site that was developed with ASP.NET. But when my Network Administrator tried to change the 404 page for this site from the old ASP page to the new ASP.NET page, the code for the ASP.NET page was viewed literally, like this:
<%@ Page Language="VB" ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" aspcompat="true" Debug="true" %>
Our site is using Windows 2003, IIS 6.0. If anyone has ever heard of this happening, and knows of a possible solution, that would be great. Thanks.

When you set up the error page in IIS, you can choose between File and URL.

When you choose File, and point to a file, it will be served as is. You need to set it to URL and then pass it a virtual path, like /Errors/MyError.aspx where /Errors/MyError.aspx is a path in your website.
