SourceSafe guidelines for Visual Studio 2005

I've recently moved to Visual Studio 2005 and would like to know what the most straightforward way to work with sourcesafe is.  As far as I can tell the last MS guidelines "Team Development With Visual Studio (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms998239.aspx) are 5 years old so I was hoping to get some insight from you guys.

I'm developing a web-based application where I have some vb class library projects and a web site project. Should class libraries and web sites all be in the same solution and checked in to sourcesafe as part of the solution rather than as separate projects?

I've read up and can't for the life of me figure out what the [solutionname].root folder sourcesafe creates is for and whether I should be using it.  Likewise, I see MS has added back Web Application Projects.  I've been using Web Site Projects and from what I've read don't see any reason to switch to Web Application Projects, are there any sourcesafe implications I should be aware of?

That solution.root business is fairly well explained in a page on Microsoft's site.  I don't recall the URL, but a bit of Googling should do the trick, especially if you use Googles advanced search to restrict the search to microsoft.com.

"the most straightforward way to work with sourcesafe is"... don't :)

Use subversion or similar instead. Life is so much easier.

Don't check in anything that is generated by the compiler: .DLLs, .OBJs, .PDBs, .SUOs, etc.

If you are new to source control here is a good tutorial: http://www.ericsink.com/scm/source_control.html
