How to rewrite php URLs in IIS7?

O need to know how to rewrite php URLs to make them SEO friendly on a Microsoft server.

 I inherited a site that was done in php. I moved it to my server which is a Microsoft server running IIS7. The client does not want to pay me to change it to asp.net so I'm kind of stuck. But he pays well - and on time!

Links look like this: <a href="?p=about"> where p is a folder that contains the about.php page.

I want to use SEO friendly URLs but I don't know how to do that in iis7.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Best,
MHenry

Yes you cant use the .htaccess in IIS, Instead there is a web.config file that works similarly to .htaccess.
