NEED help: setup non script engine to work via FastCGI RRS feed

     Can anybody post here instructions (even briefly): how to setup non script engine to work via FastCGI on IIS6? I have mapserv.exe (UMN Map Server, ms4w): I know that it supports fcgi - works perfectly on apache for windows. This program can produce cartographic images and much more. It just uses command-line args (map-config file name & other params) to perform some operations. How can I install this executable as fcgi module: so
    http://localhost/cgi-bin/mapserv.fcgi?map=blabla&layers=blabla ... will run
    mapserv.exe via fastcgi with corresponding parameters.

    I tried but without success.

    You can use fcgiconfig.js script to add FastCGI application, run the following command line after installation
    cscript fcgiconfig.js -add -section:"SECTIONNAME" -extension:EXTENTION -path:"path\to\cgi\executible"

    of course I tried this, this just adds ini entry


    how can I check that fastcgi isapi module loaded (already works)?

    How can I be sure? Perfomance grows not so visibly. How could I correctly map .fcgi extension to run via isapi filter. Do I need  to create copy of my mapserv.exe and rename it to mapserv.fcgi?
