Where is "web service extension" for ASP 3.x in IIS 6.0?

I am trying to develop an ASP.NET intranet web application for my company.  I am using Visual Studio 2010, but our server is Windows 2003 R2 with IIS 6.0.  Please see the attached screenshot of my IIS snap-in at my server.

I do not have room to install .NET 4.0 on my server, so I am trying to develop for .NET 2.0 ~ 3.5, which I have confirmed are installed on the server.  However, the only "web service extension" I see on my server's IIS is "ASP.NET v2.0.50727" (see screenshot).

The website I am creating in VS 2010 does not look quite right in IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET 2.
Are there "web service extensions" for ASP.NET 3.0 or 3.5?  If so, how do I find those .dlls?

Or, am I making this too difficult and there's an easier way to develop websites for older versions of .NET?

I think all you have to do is enable it for your site:

In IIS go to the properties of your site, then click the ASP .NET tab, and there's a dropdown there that you can select the version of .NET

Hi,
Yes, 3.5 is a update to 2.0. It is not a new framework.  Most people on installing .NET 3.5 on the server "expect" an entry for  v3.5 under the ASP.NET version Tab in IIS manager or WeB Extentions and it isn't there.
Please see this post for more details
