Deploying .Net Application in visual studio 2005

All,
I am trying to deploy my .Net 2.0 web application and I am looking for
the best approach. The setup and deployment project seems to copy the
whole source files also. Is there a better way to do this? Or am I
doing anything wrong?

My solution has one web project and 3-4 web services.
Please advice which is th best way to deploy my application.

Thanks in advance

Hi Nerd,

Right click your web application and select Publish. Chose a handy temp
folder and VS2005 will create a compiled version of your web application
and put the files in the temp folder. Then zip the content and ship it to
wherever it should be installed.

Thanks Morten Wennevik
But this doesn't create a "setup" program. Does it?
We have to create the virtual directory and all manually.. right?

Is there some way I can publish the website and use it by the "Set Up
and Deployment" project to create a setup program?

Maybe this will let you deploy a compiled version
