I am trying to setup my first Sharepoint 3.0 server on my 2003 server.  I installed the IIS server and I have been trying to install asp.net 2.0 per the instructions from MS.  The server has .net 3.0 and 3.5 as well as 1.1 installed all ready.  When I try to install the 2.0 I get an error saying it is incompatible with a previous version and doesn't install.  I checked in the contro panel with the idea I needed to uninstall 1.1 but there is not an entry there for it, only 3.0 and 3.5.  What do I need to do?

I suggest you use more descriptive subjects so the right people can find your questions.

I'm a bit confused. It seems you're mixing references to the framework runtimes with asp.net versions. I believe asp.net is part of the framework.

The framework 2.0 is a subset of 3.x, so having 3.x inherently means you have 2.0.

I beg to differ. While I'm not going to claim to be an authority on installation/uninstallation of the frameworks, I know that the 3.x frameworks are most certainly build on top of 2.x. Installing 3.x does indeed contain 2.0. The only exception was 1.1, which was entirely separate.

A quote from MS Downloads on the 3.5 framework:

"Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 contains many new features building incrementally upon .NET Framework 2.0 and 3.0, and includes .NET Framework 2.0 service pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.0 service pack 1."

A quick search for ".net framework 2 included with 3.5" produced a lot of material. Here's one of the first hits:
