urlmapping to blog in nested application

Hello all

I have blogengine.net running in a separate application in a subdirectory of the root application, and  I was glad to learn about inheritInChildApplications to solve the web.config problem, but now I am struggling with the following:

<urlMappings enabled="true">

<add url="Default.aspx" mappedUrl="Blog/Default.aspx" />

When I navigate to the root application, I want to show the blog by default. The above urlmapping, however, results in a server error "The type or namespace name 'BlogEngine' could not be found".

Does anyone know how to accomplish the mapping in a maintainable and SEO friendly way?
