 > 4. Point your browser to this (root) URL (you will not be redirected),
 and the WordPress install page (step 1) will appear

 That is indeed your problem.

 i've just installed 2003 R2, Enabled IIS6, Installed the latest FastCGI
 extension from iis.net, Run the PHP 5.3.3 installer, etc

 Extracted wordpress files to C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress Created a
 Virtual Directory 'blog' to point to that folder as well

 Loaded http://localhost/blog/ and was redirected to the folder as
 expected. My $_SERVER contents looks the same as your's for the most

 Have you configured something else related to redirects, or Rewrites, or
 something? I have a feeling something in your server stack is intercepting
 the redirection and not passing it to the browser, but making the request
