IIRF (url rewriting for IIS) and caching

I am running SS2.4 on Windows Server 2003 (IIS6). I have IIRF installed, and SS works out of the box.

Now I'm trying to enable caching, however I cannot get my rewrite rules to work in IIRF.

I'll admit that I'm a complete newb to IIRF, and Apache .htaccess for that matter. I didn't get anywhere reading the IIRF DOCs, nor through trial and error, so now to the SS forums...

Can anyone assist?

The Rules and Conditions I'm working from work fine on a shared Linux hosting account (though I've replaced %1 with $1 for IIRF).

## these rules don't work!!!
# Cached content - IIRF
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^GET$
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /(.*[^/])/?$
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/cache/$1.html -f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* /cache/$1.html [L]

# Cached content - homepage - IIRF
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^GET$
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/?$
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/cache/index.html -f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* /cache/index.html [L]

## The following works, I did not edit
# URLs with query strings
# Don't catch successful file references
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)\?(.+)$ /sapphire/main.php?url=$1&$2

# URLs without query strings
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /sapphire/main.php?url=$1

I'm testing by placing a cachetest.html file in the cache folder, and then loading http://www.myexample.com/cachetest/.

http://www.myexample.com/cachetest/ gives me the SS default Page not Found, while http://www.myexample.com/cache/cachetest.html loads the html file just fine. Again, this all works as expected on a shared Linux Host, so now I'm trying to get my Windows box working.

Thanks in advance,
