Hey cobradude we're not ignoring you, honest! Welcome to WebmasterWorld! :)
I speak a little Apache but unfortunately, no IIS. I will try to round up a little help for you though. Stay tuned! ;)

Question would you be happy to have fixed URLs like this;
www.example.com/topic or www.example.com/subdirs/topic
www.example.com/forum or www.example.com/subdirs/forum
or do you want to be able to have those extensions available if entered at the end of any URL within your site?
The reason I ask is that if you just want a fixed URL for each item then simply create a sub-directory with a default document, that way "www.example.com/topic" will work even though in reality it is "www.example.com/topic/default.php"

I am not sure what you are trying to do cobradude, I don't understand exactly what .htaccess does, and though I know something about how to clean URLs in IIS I need to know in more detail what you are trying to do in order to give you an answer.

For clarification, from the Apache docs:
The <Files> directive provides for access control by filename.
The ForceType directive forces all matching files to be served as the content type given by media type. For example, if you had a directory full of GIF files, but did not want to label them all with ".gif", you might want to use:
Note that this will override any filename extensions that might determine the media type.

Yes you can perform mod rewrites with an ISAPI filter in IIS. I don't know of any free ones but if you search for asp url rewrite you will find several solutions.

DaveAtIFG, thanks for digging in on the documentation.
korkus2000, I'll do a search for that, thanks.
