Speeding up IIS (?) or C# apps in general (?)

Ok... This may be the wrong forum, but it's the first place I'm trying.

I'm new to C# and just implemented the 3-tier Distributed application from
Chapter 1 (the first walkthrough) in the "Walkthrough" book that comes with
Visual Studio .NET 2003 Enterprise Architect.

My first observation is -- woah, is this thing slow. From the time I
clicked "load" to the time I had a populated data set on the windows-based
app was almost 5-10 seconds or more (subsequent runs were a little faster).
Of course, when I stopped to think about it, I realized some of that is
probably the delay in getting a response from IIS (the webserver) even
though it's on localhost and I'm the only one accessing it. So, my first
quesion to this newsgroup is as follows:

Are there any general recommendations for speeding up IIS (presuming that's
my problem). I'm sure I'm not the first to run into this. A pointer to a
FAQ/Website would suffice.

Thanks,
Rob

p.s. A hint to others who haven't already run into this: Don't install
"Sharepoint Portal Services" because it seems to break Visual Studio's
ability to create web services. This is probably common knowledge by now.
A quick fix for those who have it is to just uninstall it.

If you reply -- please consider e-mailing me at rob wilkens at hotmail dot
com (without spaces and replace that at with an @). I might still be
interested in hearing about how to fix this.

I probably won't be checking back. I think i've decided against being a
..NET (.not?) developer. If this is how the first sample in the samples book
performs, it does not bode well for the platform as a whole.

Well, I'm not goint to bother responding to your email. If you don't care
enough to come back and read the response you don't really need to read it.

However, you left out a lot of details, like if you running in the debugger,
runing unoptimized code, if the data set is backed by a database, how big
the data is, etc. I don't happen to have a walkthrough book here, I don't
even konw if I have one. If I do its no where within walking distance.
Please, if you want help post the information needed to get help.
