Redirecting domain names in IIS 7

I have several domain names all point to the same IP as one of our sites. I want to configure these domain names to redirect (301) to one of my domains. For example I want site1.com and site2.com to redirect to www.site.com.  Any help would be appreciated.

FYI: I did this in IIS 6 and had no problems by simply adding a site leaving the ip address all unassigned pointing the path of the real site then doing the redirect on the home directory tab. When I try the same steps in IIS 7 I have binding issues.

Thank you,

There is an http redirection module in iis7, if you can not see an icon for it then you may need to install it.  In windows features window goto - IIS - World Wide Web Services - Common HTTP features - tick http redirection.

You can do exactly the same thing in IIS 7 but you left out a step - you have to set an appropriate Host Header for the site or you will get binding issues.
