Deploying asp.net application on IIS 7 by a complete beginner

Hi,

I know I am trespassing on professional’s territory here, where I have no right to be, but I need help in the following:

I am trying, for the first time, to deploy an Asp.net application on a Windows 2008 Server.

I see many articles out there on how to go about doing that, but my question is a simple one (maybe a naïve one too):
 
if I simply take the Asp.net application from my local machine and place it  into the wwwroot directory (inside the inetpub directory of the server’s drive C) wouldn’t this be a workable type of deployment, or do I have to deploy it in some other way?

Please help me arrive at the simplest form of deployment.

Thanks.

well you need to make sure you have the target asp.net framework installed on the server.  If the application is compiled in asp.net 3.5 then you need to have 3.5 installed on the server and make sure it is enabled by clicking "allow" in the web extensions folder.
