Remote Web Workplace - Remote directory missing from companyweb

I am running a fresh install of SBS2003 that came with SP1.  I am trying to get Remote Web Workplace up and running.  I've been through this before with no problems.

When I go to the homepage of companyweb and click on the Remote Web Workplace link, it goes to a page, the address bar of the browser says "https://companyweb/Remote/" and it generates an error message that says:

The page cannot be found
The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Make sure that the Web site address displayed in the address bar of your browser is spelled and formatted correctly.
If you reached this page by clicking a link, contact the Web site administrator to alert them that the link is incorrectly formatted.
Click the Back button to try another link.
HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

If I look in the C:\inetpub\companyweb there is no "Remote" folder.  What do I do to get this working?

Thanks in advance!

The Remote directory is in C:\Inetpub\remote.  There should also be a virtual web site listed under the Default Web Site in IIS Manager called "Remote".

If these are not there, please follow this KB to reinstall IIS 6.0: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/887305

Well, it seems as though you've called your server "companyweb"???  

Please post an IPCONFIG /ALL so that I can take a look at your configuration.

Also, just to clarify... "companyweb" is the SharePoint intranet... it's not the default page you see when you enter http://localhost on your server.  Normally it would be accessed by going to http://companyweb

If you enter http://localhost/remote, I'm guessing that you'll get to your RWW page.

I don't think you're following me.  It seems to me from the path name that it's looking for a webpage in a sub-directory called Remote.  If it's not finding that, why not?  Where is it looking?  Where should it be looking?  Where should that Remote directory be located?

When I enter http://localhost/remote I get the error I pasted in my original post.  My question is why is this occurring?
