I need help moving a website from IIS6 to IIS7

Hello Experts,
I have been tasked with moving/transferring a website, that is installed in a machine using IIS6 to a machine that has IIS7.  How do I do this?  What are the steps that I need to take?  Is it just as simple as moving the files from one machine to another, and placing the files in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot?

Thank you very much in advance for your help,
mrotor

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Fortunately for you this process is rather easy and there is a step by step on iis.net
