I just installed IIS and can read html files and gif files but when I try to open a .asp file it kicks back the 404 error.

So how do I make it read active server pages..

I know the files are there because I can put a .htm file next too it and it opens no problem at all..

ASP is not allowed by default when you install IIS. To allow it do the following:
-in IIS Manager MMC console select Your_server->Web Service Extensions
-in the right pane select Actice Server Pages and click Allow

For reference see KB article 315122:
