Default customizing 404 error page

I'm trying to setup a custom 404 error page on my website, and I'm following this IIS 6.0 guide:


It tells me I can open the properties of my website, click on the custom errors tab, select the error I wish to customize (in this case, 404), and click edit.

From there, I'd like to set it to a URL. I would like to chose my home page so that when someone searches for, say, http://www.mm-theory.com/nofilehere, it redirects to http://www.mm-theory.com. The problem is that when I enter the full URL (http://www.mm-theory.com) it tells me:

"Wrong URL format. Please enter an absolute URL within the site."

It does this for any page within my site. I can't see how the URL I'm entering is not absolute, and all URLs I enter are indeed in my site.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
