My Default Web Site in IIS 6 (running on Windows Server 2003 standard for Small Business Server) has stopped and when I try to start it I get a message that says "The parameter is incorrect".   Some searches indicate it's something to do with the application pool which I am not sure how to check or fix.  Any ideas on this and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

OK, I was able to fix this from the "Home Directory" tab from "Properties" of the Default Web Site linking back to the AppPool with the Application pool field.  After making this modification everything started working spot-on!
