Are you referring to the banner?

If so, the only way I've found is to use URLScan and follow the instructions in this article:

Actually it's considered good practice to move the IIS folder to another location/drive. It reduces the attack profile.

Hi,
Tony1044 is correct. URLScan can remove server info using the "RemoveServerHeader" feature.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc242650.aspx
With that said, the HTTP header, the TCP/IP response can be determined on most apps (including IIS) so EVEN IF you took that header off, it would still be possible to enumernate.
For example telnet to port 80 on your server and then press control-C.
Hope it helps,
