Directory Mapping Problem with Coldfusion 7 on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6

I currently have a coldfusion 7 web app on a Windows XP Pro box and it is working just fine using the built in CF web server. This is my development box. We recently purchased a Windows Server 2003 box with IIS 6 and I would like to copy my application to that box.

Since the app will be used internally I did not create a new website with IIS. I just created a Virtual Directory. The problem I'm having is that the Coldfusion directory mapping isn't working properly. It's a problem with the leading forward slash "/" used by coldfusion to indicate the root directory. I don't belive IIS 6 is recognizing that as the web root.  I can serve up .cfm pages just fine but since my style sheets and cf includes use the leading forward slash "/". The stye sheets and includes are not working.

Has anybody come accoss this before? I have done some research on installing CF 7 on IIS 6 but this particular issue has NEVER been addressed. I think it migh be in how I'm setting things up but I'm not sure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
