Making a url accessible w/o including file extension

Hello,
  I recently developed a registration page for a client and provided a URL that contained a .cfm extension, well they did not include the .cfm on the printed media so customers are receiving a page cannot be found error.  Is there a way that I can make this page accessible without the .cfm extension and if so do I do this in IIS or so I have to code something into the page?  Thank you

It  is in the IIS admin section - look for handler mapping or MIME mappings.

Thank you very much it worked.
Cool - as a side note, this is often the strategy used when providing a URL in print.   It reduces errors that can be caused by people reading and trying to enter extensions.   It's easier for people to type    www.yoursite.com/bigSale   so you may want to do it on purpose moving forward :)
