Default How to start a web application

I'm sure there is a blindlingly obvious answer to this one!

I am quite new to .NET. When I open start a new project and select ASP .NET web application the location box reads http://localhost/WebApplication1
but the Name: box is greyed out and I'm unable to start the new project.

I guess the answer is that I don't have IIS installed. How can I check this and how do I install it?

Also, looking to the future, does anyone know of anyone who does FREE ASP.NET web hosting??

If I am right, IIS should come along with your OS s/w pack, that can be optionally installed anytime.

To check if IIS is installed - How to Tell If Internet Information Services Is Installed on Your Computer

May be someone answer this. I am not sure about any free asp.net web hosting servers.

http://www.brinkster.com. They have a learning package that is free.

IIS comes with Windows 2k, and XP Pro and up. Not XP Home.
