Short answer, no, IIS wont run on Windows Mobile.

Long answer (read: alternate solution), your best developing a WinForms (mobile) version using SQL CE.

If you write your code well, place all your business logic within the same assembly, then you can build a regular web interface ( and/or which will implement your business logic, the write the aformentioned WinForms Mobile version, implementing the same class library for business logic.

Yes; however, if your PDAs have internet access, they could access the same web interface as everyone else. – Nate Aug 2 '10 at 15:03
