Is it possible to allow a user (or group of users) permission to view and edit websites settings using the IIS Manager snap-in without giving them administrative privileges on the Windows 2003 server? Ideally it would be nice to give that user/group permission to only selected websites and/or application pools.

This feature doesn't exist in Windows 2003/IIS6. There is an option that is not supported by Microsoft though:

Windows 2008/IIS7 supports admin delegation out of the box.
