Unable to create or start a webapp in VS

When I try to create a new ASP.NET webapplication (in Visual
Studio 2003) or try to open an existing one, I get the following
error-message :

'The webserver reported the following error when attempting to
create or open the Web project located at the following URL
'http://localhost/WebApplication01 Unable to connect to the
server'.

But I know IIS is running, because I can start an existing
WebApplication by typing its URL in the browser,
for example 'http:/localhost/MyWebApp'.

Who can tell me how to solve this problem ?

make your solution point to http://localhost/MyWebApp instead of
http://localhost/WebApplication01

I'm totally unable to open the solution of one of my existing
webapplications or to create a new one.

Visual Studio shows the alert and that's it, it doesn't proceed
or anything. All my webapps are now 'unreachable' to me and
creating a new webapp isn't possible either.

I'm in deep trouble ...

are you admin on your machine? i mean can you create virtual directory
manually in the IIS?
