VS 2008 C# Trying to open an ASP.NET blank web project get error "Forbidden: Header 'content-type'

VS 2008 C# Trying to open an ASP.NET blank web project get error "Forbidden: Header 'content-type' value denied.

This error comes out no matter what when I chose C# and http and put in the URL I want "http://www.terrifictrips.com/karl/" I immediatly get a grey windows pop-up that reads:

"Unable to create website 'http://www.terrifictrips.com/karl'. Forbidden: header 'Content-Type' value denied"

Even google has let me down - again this is just starting to create a project! No code yet or anything?

Any thoughts?!

Turned out that godaddy.com had to create a "virtual directory" for me. I was not clear on what exactly this meant but once they did "it" (I just said hey I need a virtual directory). everything works great! SO if you want to upload your published asp.net pages with godaddy (windows based of course) hosting just call em and ask!

Is visual studio running on http://terrifictrips.com ?  And if not, are Front Page Server Extensions installed on the server and do you have authoring privileges there?  This sounds like a FPSE mixup to me.  If you can create the site on localhost, does that work?  Let's eliminate Visual Studio as the source of the problem up front.

Please let me know,
