Default I'm at a loss with IIS 5.1...

I'm at a loss with IIS 5.1...

After a fresh install, I'm now running on Windows XP pro, service pack 1 (I've installed all critical updates).

::HERE's THE BEEF (common error, I know)::
A) I can't get rid of this error page when I type in http://localhost/
    >>> "The page cannot be displayed" error page.
B) When I type in my computer name (http://sweet/) I get the error
    >>> "Bad Gateway
The following error occurred:
[code=DNS_HOST_NOT_FOUND] The host name was not found during the DNS lookup. Contact your system administrator if the problem is not found by retrying the URL."
C) I just turned off the advanced internet options feature to show friendly HTTP error messages and received this error:
    >>> "Server Error
The following error occurred:
[code=CANT_CONNECT_LOOPBACK] Cannot connect due to potential loopback problems"

Now, I seem to remember having troubles like this before and have always found/stumbled into a successful resolution... not this time.

1) Reset my NTSF permissions as per this article:
      >>>opening Internet Information Services App from Administrative tools
      >>>selecting my default website
      >>>drop down the action menu >> select all tasks >> select permission wizard
      >>>inherit all security settings... through the wizard
2) Set my site security to low by as per this ladies last response:
    >>>right click my default website
    >>>select properties
    >>>go to home directory tab
    >>>made sure read,write are selected
    >>>made sure application protection is low
3) I can see my "dynamic ip" when I type ipconfig from the cmd prompt
4) I've restarted my server by:
      >>>opening Internet Information Services App from Administrative tools
      >>>selecting the local computer icon
      >>>drop down the action menu >> select all tasks >> selecting restart IIS

5) I've uninstalled Norton all-together to avoid any conflict

I'm ready to pull my hair out!! ><


1) My ISP is rogers and I do not have an internal IP configured... do I need one?
2) I can see that everything "seems" to be working as it should, everything is "started" and my default pages on in the InetpUb/wwwroot directory... pages just don't preview/display??
3) I don't know how, but could I have a corrupt asp.dll? I found mention of this in another article
4) I do not have IIS lockdown installed
5) I found this article about changing the distributed transaction coordinator... I can NOT access my component services area? a error "unable to start the comuid.dll" error appears.

I hope someone can help as I may soon convert to linux :-p
