Removing .Net Framework v 1.0.3705

I have installed Visual Studio .Net 2003 on top of an earlier version. Now,
when I open a new project I get a message that says Visual Studio .NET has
detected that the web server is running ASP.NET version 1.0 ... it goes on
to say that I can create the project to be compliant with version 1.0 but
that the application will not be able to use the newer features of ASP .NET
1.1. Now, having installed VS .Net 2003 I understand that I have ASP .Net
1.1 ... in fact when I go to Add/Remove programs I see "Microsoft .NET
Framework (English) v1.0.3705" and "Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1".
Essentially my question is: Can I safely remove Microsoft .NET Framework
(English) v1.0.3705 and will this also remove ASP .Net 1.0? One concern I
have is that Add/Remove shows that Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 uses 36.83MB
of disk space and Microsoft .NET Framework (English) v1.0.3705 uses
1,688.00MB. I have no idea why there is such a discrepancy.

Can someone tell me if I need to retain both versions .NET Framework ... and
explain the size difference between v1.0.3705 and 1.1?

Thanks for your help.

For the record:

Version 1.0 = build number 1.0.3705
Version 1.1 = build number 1.1.4322

It's no problem to keep both of the versions on your system; they can live
next to each other. If you remove 1.0, apps written for 1.0 will try to run
with the 1.1 version. There are a few minor breaking changes, so probably
this will work for all your 1.0 apps.

Thanks for the reply but I think my problem is a lack of a basic
understanding about how web apps created with VB .Net work. I am a
newbie/hobbyist with this stuff and do not have large applications. When I
installed version 1.1 [build number 1.1.4322] of the .Net Framework I did it
with the intention of replacing version 1.0 [build number 1.0.3705] ... I
was simply trying to stay up-to-date. I now understand that unlike most
software, installing a new version of .Net does not replace the older
version. In my case I would like to get rid of version 1.0 ... as far as I
am concerned it is just clutter.

As I understand it, in order to test my web apps on my own machine (before
deploying them to a web server host) I have to have IIS installed ... which
I did months ago and have used successfully to debug my simple web apps.
Now, when I launch Visual Studio .Net 2003 (which is, in essence, .Net
Framework 1.1 as I understand it) to create a new web app I get a message
that says Visual Studio .NET has detected that the web server is running
ASP.NET version 1.0 ... it goes on to say that I can create the project to
be compliant with version 1.0 but that the application will not be able to
use the newer features of ASP .NET 1.1. The message tells me I can either
upgrade ASP.NET on the server or I can make the app being created compliant
with ASP.NET version 1.0. I want to do the former ... but I do not know how
to upgrade ASP.NET on the server [I had thought that would have happened
when I installed VS .Net 2003].

Thus, I have two questions:

How do I upgrade ASP.NET on my server?

Can I safely remove Microsoft .NET Framework (English) v1.0.3705 and will
this also remove ASP .Net 1.0? One concern I have is that Add/Remove shows
that Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 uses 36.83MB of disk space and Microsoft
..NET Framework (English) v1.0.3705 uses 1,688.00MB. Way is there such a
discrepancy?

Thanks for your patience with someone struggling to understand this new
world called .Net
