Each version of Visual Studio targets a single framework revision as below:
VS2002 -> .NET 1.0
VS2003 -> .NET 1.1
VS2005 -> .NET 2.0

If you are after an open source IDE like you said in your question then check out SharpDevelop (http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SD/). With SharpDevelop you can choose which of the 3 .NET frameworks you want to build against (or even choose Mono).

SharpDevelop does support web sites however it does not have a visual designer. While VS2005 supports both the standard Web Site and Web Application (via an addon). However you can't install the Web Application addon with VWD, only VS2005.

Under the features on the site is says: "Write C#, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, XML, HTML code"

I just installed it and it only comes with a template for a C# web site so you need to convert the C# template to a VB.NET by using the coverter after you create it in C#:

thank you for your reply so in sharp develp, to get it to work on a web site application you need to convert the C# to VB.NEt, so it then it will only be able to work on vb files? or C# can still be used

If you want to use VB.NET for your web site, yes you would need to create a C# web site then convert it to VB.NET. I am not sure why they didn't include a VB.NET template for a website unless I missed it while I was looking in the new project dialog.
