How do I share a Visual Studio website with a couple of users?

Hi Experts,

WARNING: SUPER_NEWBIE question to follow:

Okay, I've created a web-site in Visual Studio 2008 and pounded on it pretty good. Now I want a couple of key users to be able to bring it up and do some testing with it. They don't have Visual Studio on their desktops. How do I deploy it to them in order to let them run it so they can do some testing?

Since no one else knows it, only those users will test it.

Okay, here comes the next stupid question:

How do I do what you're saying to do.

I know how to copy the files to a remote site. How would I deploy to the internet?

In your project you can select Build menu and choose Publish Web site.
Then you indicate the location you want.
