Actually you dont have to deal with iis related jobs since the hosting firm should take care of those. But if you are responsible for that, just create a virtual directory as you said, set it physical path to your website directory and that will suffice.
ok then just put your application folder in inetpub/wwwroot then go to iis administration tool from the administrative tools. You will see your application folder when you expand the default website. Then right click on the application folder, click properties, and click create button. Give the rights to execute scripts. Play around with it, it is not that hard
