If Internet Information Services (IIS) isn't installed initially with the operating system and service pack 2 is then applied, installing IIS from the original media will cause IIS not to publish ASP files and consistently throw error messages when asked to build and display a page.

Download and re-install Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (32-bit x86) from Microsoft.com
