ASP AJAX 2.0 and IIS 7

Hi Experts

I am running IIS7, and a need asp ajax 2.0 on a server. Unfortunately I don't know much about ajax.  I was hoping someone can help me answer the following questions.

1.) is Ajax already installed or implemented, etc on IIS7? I have .net 4.0 is installed if that helps. If it's not installed (or whatever) by default, how would I go about this?
2.) is ASP Ajax a special version of ajax or is it just a module?
3.) how can i test to see if ajax is on my server?

Thanks so much!

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML

AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) has been integrated into Microsoft's .NET 3.5 Framework, replacing a previous AJAX package that could be downloaded and installed on top of ASP.NET 2.0. What this really means for developers is that if you want to use AJAX with .NET, instead of having to download and install a separate ASP.NET AJAX setup routine for any applications you distribute, when you use AJAX in a .NET 3.5 Framework application the AJAX registrations are automatically added by Visual Studio 2008.

from

http://www.beansoftware.com/ASP.NET-Tutorials/Ajax.aspx

If you are creating an application using .net 3.5 then you need it installed and you will automatically have .net 3.5 AJAX. If you are creating an application for an earlier version of .net then you will need to download a separate AJAX package and install it.

1) If you have version 4.0 of the .net framework installed then you have the ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 installed.

2) ASP.NET AJAX is part of .net 3.5 and .net 4.0 and is just part of the ASP.NET, you can download the AJAX Control Toolkit which gives you additional AJAX enabled controls which have greater functionality.

download the AJAX Control Toolkit here

3) Just try one of the tutorials on the ASP.NET and see if they work

see the following website for some tutorials
