Change Web Site name to Intranet. When you double click on the IIS icon you'll see the menu below. Right Click on the "Default Web Site" icon and select Rename. Rename the Web Page to "Intranet".
Name your Web page. To name the web page you just finished go to File > Save As. In the "Save As Type" at the bottom change it to the ".htm" file extension and call your page "index.htm". You officially have a web page you can access by typing http://localhost in your web browser.
To create more pages for your new Intranet I suggest highlighting and copying the original page and pasting on a new page in Word. Then just save it as a web page and make sure to link to it from the home page or another page so people can get to it.
