Securing Citrix NFuse and IIS 5

I'm working on a pilot deployment of Citrix with its NFuse component on Win2000 to allows remote users to access our LAN via web browser. NFuse uses IIS 5 installed on the same machine to deliver all of our applications to the remote user.

Is there anything special to know about hardening IIS 5 in conjunction with NFuse that anyone here has any experience with? What about a good white paper on hardening IIS 5, besides what Microsoft has on their web site?

Has anyone used EEye's SecureIIS product with NFuse/IIS5? I've heard very good things about it and hope it might be useful here.

Thanks for any information you might be able to provide.
