Can someone please recommend a good (and preferrably free) solution to running JSP files on IIS server for Windows.  In addition, if you could send me the exact links to download all the programs I need.  The "how-to's" I've been reading for the last 3 hours are very confusing, or are outdated with older versions, or have outdated links.

typically the way to do it is to run tomcat and setup a connector (on IIS) to send any jsp requests to tomcat.
regards howto documentation, unfortunately it was pretty poor last time i checked .

Understood.  I've been trying to figure out TOMCAT for the last 3 hours.  I can't seem to follow any of these how-to's on getting it to work - it really can't be that hard!  What are the exact downloads I need to get TOMCAT running?  If I have the right downloads I can get it to work.  As far as I am aware I need the following:

1) IIS 5.0 (already working and installed)
2) Java EE 5 SDK (downloaded and working)
3) isapi_redirect.dll (already have it)
4) TOMCAT 5.5 (I can't figure out which file to download off their confusing site)
5) Apache Server - Not sure if I need this or not - I'm hoping I don't.

> 2) Java EE 5 SDK (downloaded and working)

not really needed, just the JDK is sufficient.

> 4) TOMCAT 5.5 (I can't figure out which file to download off their confusing site)

core at http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi#5.5.25

> 5) Apache Server - Not sure if I need this or not - I'm hoping I don't.

not required.

Also look into using the ISAPI Redirector

You will need Tomcat as well.
