FastCGI support on IIS6, which is a free download, opens up the Windows Server 2003 platform for hosting PHP and other FastCGI-compliant application frameworks with substantially improved performance and stability. 

The FastCGI Extension for IIS 6.0 enables popular application frameworks that support FastCGI protocol to be hosted on the IIS web server in a high-performance and reliable way. FastCGI provides a high-performance alternative to the Common Gateway Interface (CGI), a standard way of interfacing external applications with Web servers that has been supported as part of the IIS feature-set since the very first release.
