How do I get past "ASP.NET 2.0 has not been registered on the Web server" error?

I have a server that has been recently upgraded to Windows Server 2008.  I am trying to open an ASP.Net application using Visual Studio 2008 on that machine, and when I try to open the project I receive the error "ASP.NET 2.0 has not been registered on the Web server.  You need to manually configure you[sic] Web server for ASP.NET 2.0 in order for your site to run correctly, Press F1 for more details.

It seems that every solution that I see is for a different OS, and the options have changed with WS 2008.  Can someone step me through this?  Thank you!

You may open Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows Features On or Off, in the prompted dialog, drill in until you find Internet Information Services –> World Wide Web Services –> Application Development Features and then make sure the ASP.NET box is checked.

Nobody else submitted a valid answer, had to dig around and figure it out for myself.
