Application Unavailable On Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition

I recently got an email from someone asking why an ASP.NET application wouldn't work for him. I asked for some more details, and here's what I got:

It's a Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition server with plenty of RAM and a pretty fast CPU. It's running as a Virtual Server, with IIS 6 and the .NET 1.1 Framework. He get's a "Server Application Unavailable" error when he navigates to the application.

It's a fresh install. I did some quick searching, and saw that others are having the same problem. It works on Windows 2003 Standard, but not Enterprise. Unfortunately, I have yet to see a solution.

Anyone experience this issue? How did you fix it?
