I installed IIS Express Beta on my Windows 7 Professional laptop a while ago, but it just ended up confusing me. I don't know how IIS is hosted, where it exists, how it runs, and how it interacts with the 'real' instance of IIS on my computer; things like shared configuration and whatnot.

It's completely separate from the real instance of IIS, and until VS2010 SP1 adds support for it, I believe it must be launched from the command line and the debugger manually attached.
