.NET 3.5 install questions

On our server we have .NET 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 ASP.NET websites.

I am creating a .NET 3.5 website.

If my network guy installs the 3.5 FW, will the older apps still run ok?

Is 3.5 fully backwards compatible with 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 ASP.NET web apps?

Thanks!

The main point of contention is extra stuff added on top.

If you are using AJAX, for example, you might have some problems until you
ujpdate your web.config. The 2.0 bits will be pointed to a version 1.06.###
(forget the entire number), while the 3.5 bits point to 3.5.0.0 version. If
you change version in the web.config, you should be fine.

That is your biggest danger, from my experience.

Thanks. So .NET 3.5 will install side by side with older frameworks
installed on the server?
