I have created a web in Visual Studio 2005, on a computer running Windows XP Pro, Service Pack 2.  The server is Server 2003 Standard, Service Pack 1.

I have created a basic project - just typed the word 'test' onto the page, and saved.  Everything here works fine, the files make it to the server, etc, etc...

When I press F5 to run+debug I get:
'Unable to start debugging on the web server. Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. See help for more information.'
There is an OK button, and no Help button.

I have looked at every Google result in English that I can find, trying to solve this for the last week.

HELP!
