Very nice. Suggestion: I think the text could be more descriptive, i.e.  
saying that the page 'Profiles' wasn't found because there is no default
page of that group. Then just to the right of the three alternatives for 
creating a new page, there could be an explanation:

* Create Profiles.Profiles? as the default group page.
* Create Profiles.HomePage? as the default group page.
* Create Main.Profiles? as a new page in the group Main.

Same suggestion here, i.e. add a bit more explaining text.

oh, nice.. then maybe my comments above should be modified so that there 
are two kinds of 'PageNotFound'-pages, one for each of the cases above?
