ASP.NET 1.1 Default.aspx page location

I am working in NET 1.1 and vb.net 2003 on an internal intranet and am getting closer to deployment.  I am confused about the default.aspx page.

The default.aspx page for my project is located in the c/innetpub/wwwroot directory which I cannot see due to securitty.

Do I need to have this default.aspx file moved into my .net directory.
It is not the home page I developed, does it need to be or can I just redirect from it to the home page I have created.  Any explanations or articles on this subject would also be appreciated.

Thank-you very much.

Default pages are addressed in IIS.

Thank-you.  I don't have access to IIS so I still need some information on the above questions.

If you don't have access to the server than you cannot setup. You can have the default pages stored on different folders doesn't have to be the root just as long as IIS have permissions to that directory and the default page is setup. In iis you can have a default page as myhomepage.html or asp. or aspx if you wanted but you have to have access to iis.

But you don't have to have your aspx pages in program files actually I wouldn't do that at all. ASP.net should be installed with iis

Okay, just so I am clear, I don't have to have a default home page named Default.aspx residing in the same directory location as my website?  How is the default aspx page referenced in IIS.  Do I need to do anything with the c/innetput/wwwroot/default.aspx page?  Thank-you for your help.

All you have to do is open iis administrative snap in. Click on your web site go to properties and click on documents. There you can define custom default pages or use the ones that are already there.
