Missing companyweb\ sharepoint on SBS 2003

Have a customer with a SBS 2003.
They now want to start using sharepoint to give access to some files to a few external users.
Trying to set it up I find companyweb is giving error :# The website declined to show this webpage.# trying to start it locally.

Have rerun ICW and made sure all boxes is checked.

Ok, I would highly suggest utilizing Microsoft's step by step to creating/extending a new Virtual Server.  Please go to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/technet/extending-virtual-servers-HA001160786.aspx for a step by step instructions.  I did not realize until your screenshot you were using WSS 2.0. That is probably why there was the 'empty' site in IIS.  Someone started to build the new website, but did not finish.  In WSS 3.0 and later, this is all automated.  

Just from a curiosity standpoint.  Is there any reason why your company is still utilizing WSS2.0 and not using 3.0 or SharePoint Foundation?
My initial reaction to the images you have provided is the Virtual directory is empty.  The installation of the web application did now take... at all.  Was companyweb created by Central Administration?  If so, it definatly failed.  No folders, no config.web file, nothing.  What version of SharePoint are they running?  WSS 2.0?  WSS 3.0?  Both?  The reason why I ask, it looks as though there are two admin web applications.  SharePoint Central Administration I am familiar with.  The one above it is either a different version of SharePoint or a 3rd party product such as Axceler to enhance SharePoint administration abilites from the server.

I would delete the companyweb virtual directory you see in IIS (shown with provided images) and go into SharePoint central administration and rerun the Create Web Application process.  You will find that under Application Management, first column, first section, first link.

Also please note, you will have some legwork to allow this to be reachable from the internet.  One decision they should let you know up front is if they are going to want it encrypted.  Highly recommended.  I would dare say best practice for any extranet solution.

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Just for my own clarification, are you running WSS2.0 (I believe this is correct from your screen shot)
