Can anyone help me get started with ASP.NET please?

Hi - Firstly  - thanks for looking at my post!

As I put above - I am looking to start creating applications in ASP.NET rather than the traditional ASP.

I just want to get some basic information on this first and some key benefits (so I can sell the idea to my boss!)

1) What do I need to start? 
                 i)  Do I need to download any software to create an Environment?
                     i.e. Setting up a virtual folder simular to IIS?

2) Can I create my .ASPX pages in Notepad/Crimson Editor/Ultra Edit etc or do I have to use Visual Studio.NET software?

3) What are the setup cost's?

Cant think of any more questions at the moment, but I'm sure I will once I've posted this question!  ;)  If you can think of anything else please add.
I really think I could do with a step by step guide to starting up and a checklist of what is needed  - so if anyone can help - it would be apprecaited.

ANY advice will be gratefully received.

Many thanks

Easiest way is on Windows 2003 with IIS Installed.

Yes.  You will need to use the Framework SDK. is MUCH easier to compile and debug if you are using VS.NET

Depends on your current infrastructure.  Do you have a server?  Are you hosting it somewhere else? etc.  How many developers will you need to have licesnses for VS.NET. etc.

This is all. I cannot extract these files either. What has happened to the original TimeTracker, which was about 4MB in size and very comprehensive. I am ...

Storing Business Rules for Tables
Hello all, We are going to begin storing business rules as part of our table properties (PowerDesigner 12.5 current release). What I would like to ask this group is the following: 1. We would like to use a naming standard for these business rules. Before we go guessing up a naming standard, maybe one of you would like to share your standard for business rule tracking? 2. To enforce the standard, I would like to implement a script that will automagically create the business rule names (hopefully both logical names business reports and abbreviated physical names for tech...
