system.drawing not found error - ASP.NET

I just installed asp.net on a windows 2000 server. I would like to create a pie chart.  I found a sample pie chart script on the 123aspx site... here's the URL:
http://www.123aspx.com/redir.aspx?res=27396

This script seems very straightforward.  I copied the createpiechart.aspx file to c:\inetpub\wwwroot and copied the utCharting.dll file to a new "bin" folder which I created under c:\inetpub\wwwroot.  When I try to run the application, I get this error message:
File or assembly name System.Drawing, or one of its dependencies, was not found.

My understanding of ASP.NET is that system.drawing is a built in interface.  Is there some setting that needs to be set for this to take effect? Or is it possible I installed the script and/or DLL for this charting program incorrectly?

Thanks

You need to add reference to System.Drawing.dll assembly to your project.

Create a virtual folder under main wwwroot folder and copy aspx file there. Create a bin folder under that folder and copy the DLL there.

Here is a URL to a much more elaborate charting library.

I tried creating a virtual folder under wwwroot and putting the aspx file there, and then putting the DLL in a bin folder under that virtual folder.  That did not make a difference.

How would I go about adding a reference to the system.drawing.dll assembly?  I searched my system for "system.drawing.dll" and the file was not found.  Could that be the problem?  Should it have come with the .NET framework?

Thanks

System.Drawing.dll does gets installed with .Net framework. Infact without this there would not be any graphics operations in .Net apps. It should be present in <windows folder>/Microsoft.Net/<framewotk version> folder.

If this file is not there then there is serious problem with your installation of .Net framework.

Ok I checked and the system.drawing.dll file is in that folder.  What else could be wrong?  How would I add a reference to system.drawing.dll to the project??
