Hiding index.php in IIS

How do I hide the index.php while I link to another page in IIS?

In Apache it works with:

www.mypage.com/?show=about

Apache recognizes immediatly that he should call index.php?show=about (when index.php is in the list of DirectoryIndex)

It seems that it doesn't work for IIS... (using version 3 of Windows NT). I can't upgrade to another version of Windows/IIS.

Is there something to configure that it works under IIS or do I have to change my script?
