Have you checked the security restrictions? IIS6 has a new feature
whereby script mappings are disabled by default even if they are listed
in the configuration list.

To turn CGI on, go to the IIS Manager snap-in and select the 'Web
Service Extensions' folder. Select 'All Unknown CGI Extensions' and
click 'Allow'.

Incidentally, the string I am using is:

  "C:\Program Files\Python\2.4\python.exe" -u "%s" "%s"
