Moving website from II6 to II7


I know I'm probably doing something terribly wrong, but I copied the source files from one computer to another running IIS7, then I visit the site and get this error:

Error Summary
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error
The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.
Detailed Error Information
Module  IIS Web Core
Notification    BeginRequest
Handler Not yet determined
Error Code  0x80070021
Config Error    This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".
Config File \\?\C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\mysite\web.config
Requested URL   http://localhost:80/mysite/mysite/default.aspx
Physical Path   C:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\mysite\default.aspx
Logon Method    Not yet determined

Config Source
   96:      </modules>
   97:      <handlers>
   98:          <remove name="WebServiceHandlerFactory-Integrated"/>

Any help appreciated!

Is the Application Pool hosting this Application running in Classic Mode? The article Luke has pointed you too should provide the solution
