For reasons of compatibility and ease of maintainence, I strongly
suggest staying with IIs or some other server designed for NT. It (NT)
has enough problems without trying to get it to do something that
Microsoft has effectively tried to keep folks from doing (using open
source software).

It runs fine, but the windows version is not as robust as the Linux/Unix
etc. version. Plus, you will need to install some type of Perl
(ActiveState) to get it to do anything worthwhile.

Tell your friend to check out the Apache and the ActiveState web site
for explicit info.
