Clustering IIS on WIndows 2003 Server

I've been successful in installing IIS on a cluster on Windows 2000, but now on 2003 I'm stuck. I installed IIS on the server but when I go to cluster administrator I do not see it as an option to install as a resource. Am I going about this the right way or is there a whole other way to do this now. Could someone point me to a good resource or tell me how to get this up. I am using a 2 node cluster and will probably be in active passive mode.

Thanks

This is a good link for setting up clustering.

If you are clustering IIS it *will* be active/passive, no probably about it.....  :-)

Out of curiosity, why are you clustering IIS instead of load balancing?

Dave,
  To be honest, we've never really had a reason to do load balancing but you're right I should probably look into it, it's just one of those things where you don't have time to read about something so you implement it the way it's always been implemented. We have about 3 instances of IIS and vendors have set them up as active passive so I'm just following suit at the moment
