When running http://localhost on IIS 5, I get a forbidden error (403)?  It looks like it could be related to permissions...any ideas??

Go in IIS, Properties, Security and see if it's using Anonymous and/or something else.
Do you need it to ask for a U/P? If not, check anonymous ONLY, uncheck the other boxes.

Still an error? Go to your physical directory and make sure it has read access for IUSR_ (or whatever account Anonymous was using).
Also make sure you have a file in there that match your default documents: Properties->Documents

Simple fix (hopefully)

you have to point your URL to a  file.
http://localhost/mysite/myfile.asp (or) myfile.htm

If you have Deleted the localstart.asp
Then it does not have nothing to point too.
You have to have something that it knows.

Check in the properties for the existing site, and then click on the [Documents] tab.
Find out what the Document types is, then browse into the Folder [Directory] Tab.
And make sure that the file types do exist.

Good Luck
