MVC 2 Not Displaying Pages in IIS 6

All,

I am trying to install an MVC 2 app on an IIS 6 box.  I had it working at one time, but for some reason my test box removed some IIS settings.  I have found various tutorials on the web and have installed them.  I know my routes are working because when I browse to my app url:  http://host/InternationalPortal I get redirected to the login page (Usings Windows Form Authentication): http://host/InternationalPortal/Account/LogOn?ReturnUrl=%2fInternationalPortal

I have tried installing this on a couple of different servers and have made sure that ASP.NET 3.5 sp1 and MVC 2 are installed on the servers.

I have changed my global.asax to include a root route, and I have also configured the IIS to have  a wildcard map.

When I get to the logon page, I get an HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found. Error.

This is being installed on a windows 2003 server.

Any help is appreciated.

I figured it out.  I had to make sure my wildcard map on IIS had the "Verify that file exists" box unchecked.  Simple error.  Working now.
