run iis6 asp.net asmx on iis7

I have a webservice that was build with vb.net 2005 and runs on winxp pro sp2 iis5. I want to upload this to my webhost. The hosting service is server 2008 iis7. The app does not run. What do I need to do to (quickly) get the webserver up and running.

Initial error:
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level.  This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS.
