I've decided with other existing issues not to "migrate" but start again fresh. I have a clean IIS 5.0 on the new server and need to go to work setting it up. Can you point me to a good resource that explains all the IIS steps.?

After installing FoxWeb you will have to copy all files from the FoxWeb Program Root and its subfolders from the old server to the same location on the new server.  The actual FoxWeb configuration would not take more than a couple of minutes if done manually, but I guess you could also export the old server and import it in the new server.  You can use regedit.exe, highlight hkey_local_machine\software\Aegis Group and select the File\Export menu option.  Copy the resulting reg file to the new server and double-click on it.
Regarding IIS, there is a utility that can copy Metabase information from one server to another, but I can't remember where I found it in the past.  It may be included in all IIS installations, but more likely I got it from the IIS Resource Kit.

Can anyone advise on easiest way to move all I've got on my IIS 5.0/foxweb web server to new & different hardware? I've put so much configuration work into the current server that I'd hate to duplicate it manually. Thanks.
