cannot connect to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services after install on Windows server 2008 and IIS 7.0

I successfully installed and configured SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services on Windows Server 2008 Standard and IIS 7.0.  

When I try to access Reporting Services through SQL Management Studio, I get an error saying that I cannot connect.  I have attached the text of the error in the "Code" section below.

How do I eliminate this error?
Cannot connect to ppgpsrv01.

Only do this if you are unable to migrate your application.</li> </ul>       (Set "Default Web Site" and "Classic .NET AppPool" to your application path and application pool name)

I got past that error.  But, now, I get a new and similar error:

Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.3\Reporting Services\ReportServer\RSReportServer.config' is denied.

Ideas?

I got past that error, even.  Now, I'm getting this:

An error occurred while parsing the configuration file. The ReportServerVirtualDirectory element is missing.

Ay, ay, ay!
