IIS 5 with .net 2.0 setup trouble

I am working on setting up an IIS 5.0 server with .net 2.0 on a W2K SP 4 server.  For some reason I cannot open it from Frontpage like a website only in the file system.  I also cannot get it to show any pages it just gives an HTTP 500 error which would indicate rights but I am not sure how I need to setup the security so it can be used for an inhouse development server.

I this case I think IIS was not installed successfully. Can you check whether do you have a service named IISAdmin in the services list (services.msc).
If you do not have IIS, install it and then install .Net framework this should solve your problem

Yes check the IIS configuration , check the default website port no ..default is 80 or change with 7777 and check with http://localhost:7777.....or http://IP adddress:7777 and no issue with Domain Controller and terminal services you have configured on the server.
