Ok, I have hapilly been working with this in a subdirectory of my site, although there are some issues with that as listed elsewhere here. Now I want to set it up on a separate website, so I can do some clever business with master-templates and virtual directories.

I just set up the site with blogEngine.net as a subdirectory, and it works fine. So I have:
blog.sitename.com/blogEngine.NET/
and that's all good.

But really I want the users to have to type, and to see, just :
blog.sitename.com/

How do I do that please? I don't think I can set a root directory as an ASP.NET application (this is windows 223/iis6).

I know I can do a server.transfer, or create a root web.config file which bounces the user from the root to the subdirectory, but what's the best way to do this please?

Ok, I figured it out. You just make the directory BlogEngine.NET the root of the website, then you open the properties of that website. Under "home directory", remove the "default application" and then create one... "ok" a couple of dialog boxes, one of which lists BlogEngine, and it's done.
