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.

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.
