asp for dummies - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

WARNING! I'M NEW TO ALL THIS!!! Hi all! When I was at college a few years back, I learned asp (not ASP.NET!!) as part of my course. That segment was short, and I was not as interested in the web design component as the 3D animation aspect, so by now I've forgotten most of the asp I learned...

    WARNING! I'M NEW TO ALL THIS!!!

    Hi all! When I was at college a few years back, I learned asp (not ASP.NET!!)
    as part of my course. That segment was short, and I was not as interested in
    the web design component as the 3D animation aspect, so by now I've forgotten
    most of the asp I learned... Now I need asp for a site that I'm making for
    myself (a friend recommend PHP, but I dont have the time and patience to learn
    it). Anyway, my problem is this:

    When I go to preview asp pages locally, they appear OK, but when they are
    inside a frameset, instead of the page display as intended, all you see in the
    frame is the HTML/ASP code...

    I am running XP Pro with IIS, but I'm not sure how to set up my system to act
    as a local server for testing purposes. Can someone please tell me how to
    configure IIS/Dreamweaver so I can test view my site properly?

    Verify IIS working:
    1) Using Internet Explorer browser to [url]http://localhost[/url]
    Does that open a page?
    2) Stick a dead simple <html><h1>Hello</h1></html> page wwwroot
    path is (usually) c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mytest.html
    3) Use IE to browse to your test page
    [url]http://localhost/mytest.html[/url]
    - Does that appear?
    4) copy your mytest.html to mytest.asp
    Change 'hello' to <% response.write now%>
    browse to test page
    [url]http://localhost/mytest.asp[/url]

    If you get this far IIS is well enough setup to serve static HTML and dynamic
    ASP pages and we can take a look at DW config
