    No. and don't. IIS is your webserver now. Just make sure you at least run IISLockDown to prevent yourself becoming a CodeRed server. Check out http://www.ntcompatible.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=18896&highlight=iis and scroll down to clutch's post there for several resources.

    Everyone bitches about IIS being a horrid security hole, but if you manage it right, it's a great webserver. (Note: I can't manage it "right" yet, but I'm at least not serving a lil' code red =) but I'll still do what I can if you have more questions about it.

    You could always give Apache a try if you don't mind editing a text file to configure it. Although it's still not as stable on Windows as on *nix, I've been running it for 3 years and have never had any problems with it.
