Visual Web Developer does not support creating Web sites on a SharePoint Web server.

I am trying to publish the most simple ASP.NET site imagineable, but get this failure message:

Error: Unable to create the Web site 'http://localhost/TestWebSite'. Visual Web Developer does not support creating Web sites on a SharePoint Web server. See Help for more details.

I am using Visual Studio 2008.  Why does it "think" I am trying to use SharePoint?

Any ideas?

I do see that my Windows Server 2003 machine, running IIS 5.2, has a website "SharePoint Central Administration".  Should this be running?  I tried it both weays and it fails both ways.

It sounds like Sharepoint was installed and configured on that server and yes you cannot use typical web applications with it.  You'll have to go on that machine and uninstall Windows Sharepoint Services (WSS) if it's not being used.
