python, iis and windows 2003 server

I was setting up Python on Windows 2003 server, and I ran into a problem that I had not had with Python/IIS on Windows XP.

IIS would not accept the string "C:\Python20\python.exe %s %s". It turns out you have to have the following string for it to work:

"C:\Python20\python.exe" %s %s

The change is in the placement of the quotes. It should work fine after that.
