Installing fckeditor with ASP.NET 2.0

I am having trouble installing fckeditor with ASP.NET 2 in a Visual Studio 2005 project.  I think I followed the directions, but I am coming up with "ERROR 404 -  Not Found" when I debug the project. The steps I took are:

1.  Copied the dll file (FredCK.FCKeditorV2.dll) to the Bin directory and added a reference to it.
2.  Added the folder FCKeditor (with contents to the project).  
3.  Created a new page using the code listed in the snippet

What am I doing wrong?  My guess is that I am not placing the folder "FCKeditor" in the correct manner.  If someone could please assist me as soon as possible, that would be nice.

<%@ Register Assembly="FredCK.FCKeditorV2" Namespace="FredCK.FCKeditorV2" TagPrefix="FCKeditorV2" %>
<FCKeditorV2:FCKeditor ID="FCKeditor1" runat="server"> </FCKeditorV2:FCKeditor>

You need to specify FCKEditor's basepath in your code.
In your page load, add something like this:
FCKeditor1.BasePath =
Request.ApplicationPath & "/UserControls/FCKeditor/"
I assume you placed FCKeditor folder under "UserControls" folder, if not, change it to match your folder structure.

Thanks for your time.  I made the change and received an error saying:
Compiler Error Message: CS0019: Operator '&' cannot be applied to operands of type 'string' and 'string'

I have attached the entire C# code (It is only one page in this project) in the snippet below.  I think you would have the ASP.net code too, but I have attached it in the snippet.  I am not sure what to change. What do you suggest?

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        FCKeditor1.BasePath = Request.ApplicationPath & "/fckeditor/";
***ASP.NET code is below***
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="FredCK.FCKeditorV2" Namespace="FredCK.FCKeditorV2" TagPrefix="FCKeditorV2" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <FCKeditorV2:FCKeditor ID="FCKeditor1" runat="server">

I used VB.NET in my sample, and you are using C#. So change "&" to "+" for th e string concatenation in C#.

That worked perfectly.  I apologize for the delay.  I needed to leave the office at 5 PM last Friday and I don't work on Saturday or Sunday.

I need to do that too, but I find myself some excuse to get on-line for some time during weekends, and my wife does not like it. :-)
