WordPress on Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6

I have been working at this all day.  I am using the version 2.6.3 of WordPress MU, try to get an install using on IIS 6.0 / Server 2003.

I am running MySQL v5.0.51b and PHP 5.  I have confirmed the MySQL and PHP are working fine.  I have permissions to all necessary folders from an IIS perspective.  The connection strings seem to working fine as well (by using a little test php page).

Here is the error after I submit the install.

PHP Notice: Constant DB_NAME already defined in C:\Inetpub\blogs\wp-config.php on line 4 PHP Notice: Constant DB_USER already defined in C:\Inetpub\blogs\wp-config.php on line 5 PHP Notice: Constant DB_PASSWORD already defined in C:\Inetpub\blogs\wp-config.php on line 6 PHP Notice: Constant DB_HOST already defined in C:\Inetpub\blogs\wp-config.php on line 7 PHP Notice: Constant VHOST already defined in C:\Inetpub\blogs\wp-config.php on line 10 WordPress database error Table 'wordpress.wp_1_options' doesn't exist for query INSERT INTO wp_1_options (option_name, option_value, autoload) VALUES ('cron', 'a:2:{i:1227137854;a:1:{s:17:\"wp_update_plugins\";a:1:{s:32:\"40cd750bba9870f18aada2478b24840a\";a:3:{s:8:\"schedule\";s:10:\"twicedaily\";s:4:\"args\";a:0:{}s:8:\"interval\";i:43200;}}}s:7:\"version\";i:2;}', 'yes') made by add_option
