What would the exact steps be to use the IIS 7 Web Deployment Util (either GUI within IIS 7 Mgr or with command line switches or perhaps both) to import a ZIP package from an IIS 6 server - but during the import process point the site path/folder on the exported/source IIS 6 server from wwwroot (as is the case on the IIS 6 server) to a folder called www2root on the new IIS 7 server? This is needed because the new IIS 7 server already has a site that has its directory path pointing to the intepub/wwwroot folder that should not be changed and we do not want to overwrite that with the import process.

TIA ...

You can put the site files anywhere you like.  In IIS, when you "Add Web Site" it will ask you where the site files are located.
