That might because you're using ASP.NET 1.0 since validateRequest only available for version 1.1. You can just remove the validateRequest attribute to

<pages enableViewStateMac="true" />

Or try previous version of DotNetNuke.

It doesn't seem because of removing or disabling the validateRequest, instead you should see error message such as "A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected..." from HttpRequestValidationException when ASP.NET detects a potentially dangerous input string from the client.

I found this from DotNetNuke 2.0.4 readme.txt file and make sure the security settings is done before running the application.
//--------------
If using Windows 2000 - IIS5
- the {Server}/ASPNET user account must have Read, Write, and Change Control of the root application directory ( this allows the application to create files/folders )
If using Windows 2003 - IIS6
- the {Server}/NetworkService user account must have Read, Write, and Change Control of the root application directory ( this allows the application to create files/folders )

i did see  that article, i've read everything i can, but still cannot get it to work. I am using XP Pro w/sql server, so if i understand that correctly, then i should give the ASPNET account access to the wwwroot folder?

If you used the original assemblies that came from the downloaded zip file, try to re-compile all the projects.

dnn 2.x has some features that only available in .NET Framework 1.1. So the solution either upgrade to .NET Framework 1.1 as well as your vs.net or use dnn 1.x.

thanks for everyone's help.
