asp.net 2.0 weird error

P: n/a
I've been trying to fix this for a week now.
I tried to migrate my asp.net 1.1 web apps to 2.0. No code changes, complied
fine. the 2.0 version even worked on my dev machine (windows xp)
But when I run it on my production server (windows 2003) I get this error.

Server Error in '/' Application.

I know my connectstring is correct. I tried both sql server 2000 and 2005.
same exact error. the sql server serivce runs on the nt authority/network
service account.

this makes no sense at all
please help,
Howard
