Default Chapter 1: "Server Unavailable" message

I installed MS Visual Basic .NET, standard edition, then installed IIS. After writing the first "Try Out" piece of code on page 48 I get a message saying the Server is Unavailable:
"Server Application Unavailable
The web application you are attempting to access on this web server is currently unavailable. Please hit the "Refresh" button in your web browser to retry your request.

Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure can be found in the system event log of the web server. Please review this log entry to discover what caused this error to occur.."

I have followed all the directions from the book, the page I'm trying to display is: http://localhost/BegASPNET/Ch01/punctual.aspx

and that's when I get the message. Can anybody please help?

     You and I have been having the same problem. And apparently so have many other people. It is an XP Pro issue.
     Go to www.asp.net. The link to the patch is on the home page. I used it and now I can run the first example from chapt. 1.

Good Luck,
