Configuring a Development Environment

P: n/a
So far, every book I have looks at on ASP.NET jumps right into creating a
project. There is no discussion about setting up the environment, using a
local IIS install (I think it can all be ran on XP now, right?) vs. having a
development server, etc. I will want to eventually maintain several websites
using ASP.NET and SQL Server and I have my own development box with W2003
server and IIS6 running.

Anybody got some good reference material on configuring development
environments? It seems a lot different than the old ASP days... and I get
errors like "\\devserver\wwwroot$\MyWebApp does not exist or you do not have
access" when try to point to my server. I could plow through this and start
granting access but I want to understand what I am doing and how this will
work with multiple web sites on a dev box.

URL's, book recommendations, etc. welcome! Thanks!
