Try Instant Rails.

I managed to put it up and running yesterday without breaking a sweat.

Yes, a couple on this list have experince with running Rails on Windows
2003. IIS is able to run rails through FastCGI and doing this shouldn’t
affect anything else on the system as far as I know. Dont really see how
it
would, but you never know. You could also install Apache and do things
that
way. Its up to you, but it does run on Windows.
