Really like the work you have done on this starter kit - it is nice to have something that has a more basic functionality for us poor souls who need something simpler to learn from!
A couple of questions:
1) I expect to see a bin directory and a dll in there but there isn't a trace of a dll anywhere but there are code behind pages. Can anyone explain that to me ...
2) xml - for a small site like this with limited information would I see any gain in performance by using the database rather that the xml as a data source? I assume not with small amounts of data - am I correct on this?

What version of the VS do you use? The bin directory is use for all the compilations of the pages and the code behind. In VS2003 you'll find one binary per website, in VS2005 one per website + 1 per page.
2 ) Best way to store is to use SQL Express, easy to create in the IDE and maintain

I am a VS2003 user who has just purchased VS2005 (£ouch!) - I am running a compile and looking for bin folders with one of the asp.net 2 starter kits - surprised I can see vb files but no dll files...

You should never see vb files inside the bin directory. Are you sure that's the bin directory? vb files should be on the App_Code directory. Something very wrong!
What version of the VS2005 did you purchase, just wanted to know as it's not that expensive if you get the professional version

I see vb files in the App_Code directory BUT I DO NOT see a bin directory so I can't quite see how this works compared to VS2003 - am using the Pro version of VS2005. When you compile isn't a dll created somewhere??

Internally asp.net does create a dll.
