    you can use IIS6 migration tool, it can be also used for FTP site migrations, or you can use Metaedit for it.

    There is a free IIS migration tool by Microsoft:

    Its drawbacks:
    a) it only seems to work when the target server is a clean new installation
    b) there are rumours that it doesn't work well for FTP migration

    So have a look a these two commercial tools:
    IIS Export Utility:
    IIS Sites Transfer:

    Both seem to have trial versions that you could test.
