Running ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 side by side

Today I installed .NET Framework Redist 2.0 onthe server. I am very excited about this. I waste about 3 hours on moving one ASP.NET project to ASP.NET 2.0 and at the end I wanted to place it on server so we could evaluate speed. And I got error. Can you imagine?

Then I did some googleing and I found this article which says:

You can configure individual virtual directories in the IIS to use different version. The IIS Management Console has a new tab called ASP.NET, see image below, in which you can select which version you would like to use, whithout doing a lot of script-mappings.

This makes it really easy to make new applications take usage of the new .NET Framework while your old applications still use the .NET 1.1.
