The developer of ISITE, Archie Warnock, is now working on improvements on GeoNetwork also so it can take the place of ISITE instances.

GeoNetwork can crawl a local drive directly and also a remote drive exposed through the WebDAV interface.

You could use CSW for that, or one of the detailed search services GeoNetwork also provides as xml service.

GeoNetwork runs on Jetty or Tomcat (easy to configure on Windows as a service). You can configure IIS to forward incoming traffic for the catalog to the Tomcat servlet engine.
