Changing wwwroot folder for new intranet site

Hi
I'm in the process of building a simple intranet site for my company using IIS. We currently have a very old intranet setup and working, I have built a simple site and tests fine locally on my machine.
I have renamed the old wwwroot folder within c:\inetpub and copied over the new wwwroot folder, restarted IIS.

What else do I have to do in order for the new intranet pages to work? Is there anything I need to change in IIS Manager or maybe even the index.html file of the new intranet site?

Normally if you copy the files over you only need to restart the webservice for it to unload the old one out of the cache.

Do make sure you have some file that can be seen by IIS as a starter page. index.html is a good one, this is already added to ISS as a default starting page.
