I'm trying to setup blogging platform WordPress 2.8 on our IIS server.

Is there a how-to guide that I can trust to help with the installation and initial setup?

The server is already running PHP5

Thank you

the main thing is setup db including db, username and passwd before installing, and input those info in the first page when asked and that's all ;)
