changing the directory index page in asp.net

I've created a splash page for a site in asp.net and I want to change the config so that the directory index page goes directly to the splash page.  In other words I want when someone enters "www.mysite.com", I want it to go to "www.mysite.com/splash.aspx", then after the opening video plays I am using a meta refresh to redirect to the real "Default.aspx".  Is this possible?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Instead, would it work to have the directory index page become the Splash page... and then you can make a default or home page available at: www.mysite.com/home  or /home.aspx ?

Just a thought.

One potential trouble spot with making your default page go directly to the splash page... is that what happens when someone wants to go 'home' after visiting other areas of the site. (?)
Do they have to watch the splash page again every time... or are you going to set a cookie that identifies them as someone who has already seen the splash page -- so then they skip to the home page content or ?

Something to consider, if you haven't already.

You're either going to have to name your page as whatever the current default page is, or change the IIS configuration for your VDir to include Splash.aspx as a default.
