A good introduction example can be found here.
However there is a problem in the different project models. When Visual Studio 2005 was released Microsoft did an attempt to solve the "i want to place my files for web projects wherever i want"-problem, and came up with the Web Site-project type. It sucks!
That project type doesn't contain a project file and has a completely different compilation model, so it no good in most professional development projects. To do a build script for that kind of project is nigh on impossible...
So a new project type was released - Web Application Project. It is good! So good in fact that after Visual Studio SP1 - the web site project cannot be chosen and the Web Application project template is the only one left.
To bad that, in the progress, some features was removed - for example the automatically generation of a Profile-class to get easy access to the Profile-values in web.config.
Here is a add-in that gives you that feature back - ASP.NET WebProfile Generator. It will (they have promised) work in the next version of Visual Studio.
