Report Manager Will Not Display (SQL Server 2005)

Hi, I posted another question kinda regarding this but I got the question all confused so I thought I'd open a fresh one.

Installed SQL 2005 on Windows 2003 Server RC2.  Everything seems to be working... this is just a demo machine... so its not really set up officially and on a domain.  Its basically just using local administrator account for access.  

Navigating to the /localhost/Reports$InstanceName gives me an http 500 error message that says:
The website cannot display the page
Most likely causes:
The website is under maintenance
The website has a programming error

I've tried messing with the anonymous login ... I've tried playing with the AppPool in IIS and Reporting services configuration... but nothing seems to change what it displays.

Also, if you go to the report server via http://localhost/reportserver$instancename it displays the service listing out the contents and showing me the directories on the report server.  I am also able to click on the reports and open them.  So, something is working it seems to be something with IIS?

Any help is appreciated... trying to set this machine up for a demo...

Never seen it with the need for $InstanceName on the end of the URL.

What happens if you remove it?

It doesn't work.  Has to have the instance name.  I named the instance.

The instance only refers to SQL Server; Not reporting services.

Have you completed the SSRS configuration correctly via the Reporting Services Config tool?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes.  And it is all green checkmarks.  The database is named that way yes but so is reporting services.  Everywhere even in IIS the named instance is there.  As I said if you remove the named instance from the Url it does not work at all.

St3veMax, Roxanne25 is correct here, if you are installing Reporting Services on a Named Instance it will default to including the Instance Name on it.  It is required if you also have a Default Instance of Reporting Services.

I fixed it by reinstalling windows and everything... not sure what the problem was. :(  Thanks though.
