I have a v1.1 asp.net web application. Got a new server Windows Server 2008 RS which has IIS 6.0 installed.

When i tried to deploy the V1.1 web application i am getting the below error:
Unrecognized configuration section 'system.webserver'

-- I have added the below section in v1.1 machine.config
<section name="system.webServer" type="System.Configuration.IgnoreSectionHandler,
System, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

Any quick help is appreciated. Thanks in advance
