IIS giving 404 error for aspx files

I have iis running on one of my local windows 2003 machines. When I try to access the site none of the aspx pages work. So I turned on directory browsing, and was able to view all the files but when I click on one of aspx files I get 404 error.

on IIS
go into the server extensions node (second from last)
and enable .aspx extensions
is the directory setup as an application in IIS? also make sure you select the right .NET version in app properties

I have the directory setup as an application, the right .net version is selected and there is no "server extensions node" under the websites properties.

under [Machine Name] (local computer)
there are five nodes
FTP Sites
Application Pools
