I feel like a bozo for having to ask this but I am totally lost with setting up MapServer for IIS - the instructions are not all in one place.  I am running Windows 2000 Server with IIS.  I followed the install instructions to a "T" but the MapServer demo does not work.  This is what I have done

1. Copied mapserv.exe to "C:\Inetpub\Scripts"
2. Copied directory "Proj" to "C:\"
3. Copied the files in directory "lib" to C:\WINNT 
4. Test MapServer with http://localhost/scripts/mapserv.exe? and I receive the message No query information to decode. QUERY_STRING not set.  which is good
5. Downloaded A copy of the MapServer Demo and unzipped it into C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\workshop
6. Modified the index.html parameters to show my configuration or what I believe is my configuration
	<form name="demo" method="GET" action="\scripts\mapserv.exe" onSubmit="submit_form()">
      <input type="hidden" name="map" value="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\workshop\itasca.map">
      <input type="hidden" name="program" value="\scripts\mapserv.exe">
      <input type="hidden" name="root" value="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\workshop">
      <input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath" value="\tmp\">
      <input type="hidden" name="map_web_imageurl" value="\tmp\">
7. Ran the index page and called one of the demos and the map image does not appear in the resulting page just the little x indicating that it could not find the image

Anyone have any ideas on what configuration or installation steps I missed or how I can resolve my prolems.  

Or more importantly does anyone have an all encompassing install and setup instructions for IIS?

Thanks in advance and hope some out there can help.
