    I wouldn't use the Lockdown Tool as such, but URLScan still has some
    value. Check:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/tools/urlscan.mspx

    Especially the section:

    "Determining Whether to Use UrlScan 2.5 with IIS 6.0"

    Naturally, the Resource Kit is your other security friend. And see:
