I have an IIS 6.0 web server cert that is going to expire in a couple of weeks. The cert was purchased through a third party CA. If I run the cert wizard to generate the renewal CSR, will SSL be disabled on the site until the renewal is complete?

No, it wouldn't be disabled until you installed the new one.  Even if it expires, HTTPS still works, but the user will get a cert warning.

So this is a change from IIS5? I know with that one, when you generated a CSR for renewal, it would remove the current one.
