HI,

Review these URL's to find the comparisions between different versions of IIS:

IIS 4 till IIS 6

New Features in IIS7

For most frequently used commands view this blog:

Apart from this you can use IIS manager to contol all the items via GUI.
You can run IIS manager by typing inetmgr in the Run command.
