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.
