How can I disable caching from IIS instead from IE?

We have a IIS7 web server running on Windows 2008 (32bit), which is hosting our Intranet which is all about html web pages, nothing else.
Every time there is an update on a web page, we have to press F5 to refresh in order to see the updated content. I know there is a setting ("check for newer versions of the stored page") in Internet Options to eliminate this. But I am wondering if I can do this from IIS so that I do not have to ask users to change the setting in their IE.

Possible??

Many thanks!!

Go to the HTTP Response Headers section for the web site.
Click Set Common Headers on the right.
You can enable content expiration there and set it to immediate. There was also Output Cache in the IIS Server settings.
