First of all, can you please post book related question in the book's own forum here at p2p.wrox.com? http://p2p.wrox.com/book-beginning-a...0-18759-3-389/
That makes it a lot easier for (future) visitors to find relevant topics.
That said, what do you mean with "ghosted"? Are the items not available in the toolbox or is the entire toolbox gone? In the first case, check that you haven't created a 2.0 web site instead of a 3.5 version. To check that, right-click the project and choose Property Pages. Then on the References tab make sure you see 3.5 assemblies and on the Build tab make sure that .NET Framework 3.5 is selected in the Target Framework drop down.
Hope this helps,
