Error Redirection In ASP.NET

Hello Experts -
What is the least complicated way to configure an ASP.NET application to respond to site errors with a 'friendly' error message (as opposed to throwing an Application Error)?  Ideally I'd like to have an 'error.aspx' page with a generic message in it to which the app would redirect in the event that it encounters an error (any error).  Is there a quick and easy way to set that redirect up?  Thanks all.

There is two simple ways : on the IIS server or within the ASP.NET page.

On IIS Server :
Within the properties of a website (or at the granularity you want to set it) you can go to the error message tab and set the 500 one to a file of your own.

In the page :
Add a try/catch that surrounds the whole code which in the catch you redirect to the page you want.
another way to go is altering the web.config customErrors section to match your needs
