Need a simple business shell for website with menu & 1 column.
I'd like the menu to use's menu control.
I am on visual studio 2005 and would like to use master pages.
Any one know of a website with a free shell or real good tutorial to walk me thru this?
I can code just fine once I get the shell.  I'll add datagrids, etc... I am just not a web designer so I dont know much about this stuff.  thx.

Dude, a great option is DotNetNuke. All opensource ASP and you can simply install it out of the box to have a full CMS with easy user for the end user. We use it for all our clients (built hundreds of sites).

With SQL express or server you cn have a site up in 10 minutes.

I forgot to add, that once installed you can customize as you want. Its all in .asp with aspx files or even a html conversion.
If you are just looking for a master page then download the source and simply look in the portals/_default/skins folder for template aspx pages.

Even though you did not end up going with my solutions I did provide some very helpful links, especially with regards to your masterpage inquiries, etc... I would appreciate some points for my research. Thanks.
