VS2003 - Error:"Object reference not set to instance of an object"

My computer at work was just replaced and I re-installed Visual Studio 2003, IIS 5.and .NET Framework 2.0  I created a new ASP.Net project. When I try to preview it in Internet Explorer (or if I start the project without debuggin)  I get the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".
When I try to debug the app, I get "Error while trying to run project...Server side - error occurred on sending debug HTTP request".
I have tried a number of things but nothing seems to work.
I would appreciate some help with this.

Make sure the web site is configured to run under the version you coded in IIS. The application will fail to start if you attempt to run a .NET 1.1 application under the .NET 2.0 framework or vice-versa.
