Please post the thred in relevant forums only, moved from SQL 2005 DBA section. RS 2005 comes with a Configuration Tool that creates the virtual directories, connects to the repository, updates the config files etc. Look at "Report Server Virtual Directory" above the "Report Manager Virtual Directory".
Find it at Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -> Configuration Tools -> Reporting Services Configuration Satya SKJ
