Default Creating The Project In VS2008 - Directory for Solution?

In VS2008 the 'Creating the Project' (p49) seems to be causing me a problem. I have created localhost/Guestbook site in IIS 7 Windows 2008 under a DNN 5.3.1 Install package and that works well and is situated in a directory called "C:\vigdev\Guestbook" as virtual directory "//localhost/Guestbook".

So when I come to create the project (p51) I double click My Project.

I leave the Assembly name as GuestbookVB and clear the root namespace (to blank). (VS2008 sets "Application type" disabled and reads as "Class Library".)

So I click on the Web tab and "Apply server settings to all users" is already hatched so I leave it hatched.

I click on the "Use Local IIS Web Server" and enter "http://localhost/Guestbook" in the Project URL.

I unhatch the "Override application root URL".

I do not click the "Create Virtual Directory" button.

BUT.. when I then attempt to leave this page it informs me that "The local IIS ULR: http://localhost/GuestBook specified for Web Project GuestbookVB has not been configured. To keep these settings you need to configure the virtual directory."

So I click on the "Create Virtual Directory" button and get the message "Unable to create the virtual directory. The URL http://localhost/Guestbook is already mapped to a different folder location."

So anyone know what the next step should be???

[PS Are there any other differences between VS2005 and VS2008? Since I have only just bought the book and VS2008 has been out for quite some time I was surprised that I was confronted with VS2005 actually.]
