Is there a way where I can run perl on a windows 2003 server and still use IIS?  I am trying to install Awstats on my server, but it needs to use perl script in order to make it work.  I know perl normally works on Apache, but can I also work on IIS?

Sure it can. According to a few documents on Microsoft support website the Activestate Perl installer will automatically configure your IIS to run perl scripts. Just make sure you install IIS before you install Perl.
Also note that if you're gonna run Perl scripts from directories other than the default cgi-bin, you should mark them as CGI script directories in the IIS configuration.
