I keep seeing in the MSDN references to some magic utility named aspnet_regiis that fixes some IIS bugs. Where is it?

You can find it in the .NET installation directory, in: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\version for example:

c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

If you run the command

aspnet_regiis -i

it installs all the required stuff, but is generally a bad idea, since it just stomps permissions and stuff. As long as you're not running a public server, it should be fine fine, though.
