Cannot Download .pac file via. IE

I trying to download a .pac file via. IE, but I continue to receive the 404,
"The page cannot be found" error message in IE. How do I enable .pac files to download via. IE in IIS 6.0? Thanks in advance for your help.

You have to add the .pac extension to the MIME type maps in IIS. right click on Web Sites, select the HTTP Headers tab and add the .pac file type as a new MIME type.

Associated extension: .pac
Content type (MIME): would be .pac as well?

trying to look it up -  I think 'application/octet-stream' (without the quotes).

unrecognised MIME types always give a 404 file not found.
