Error in web.config after changing IIS Mappings

On my Pc I have both .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 installed. Recently after making a change to the web server I've been getting error "Section or groupname appsettings is already defined". The change I made was to add a mapping for.html extensions to :\windows\microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322 I noticed afterwards that any other mappings to aspnet_isapi.ddl are to Framework\v.2.0.50727 but I was trying to make the change for a .NET 1.1 application. I've removed the added extension and rebooted the PC.
Another thing when I was adding the mapping I got a popup "Inheritance overrides' - The following child nodes also define the value of the AspMaxDiskTemplateCacheFile property which overrides the value you have just set. Please select from the list below those nodes which should use the new value. I selected all nodes. Then I got another "Inheritance overrides' popup, this time for script messages. Again I selected all nodes.

Thanks for your help SammyI971 but I later noticed that in IIS on the website properties in the ASP.NET tab that the ASP.NET version had been changed to 2.0.5727. Changing this back to 1.14322 corrected the problem.
