I am attempting to run an ASP.NET application and trying to test some code that I made some changes on, and I am unable to get to the root directory of a computer that I bought from a friend. I am looking through the control panel, and I do not see IIS. When I do compile my Visual Studio 2008 project, I do get the website to appear and it does state that there is a local host on port 1395. How do I manually change the value for the root directory for IIS in Windows XP and how do I tell where files are going to be send to by my application via C# coding calls?

This means you are running the built-in Casini browser. You are not using the local IIS. If you want to use the local IIS, you will have to got to Add/Remove programs > Windows Components > Internet Information Services and install those.
