(Windows 2003 R2, IIS 6)

Is there anyway to disable the "Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0" HTTP header that doesn't involve installation or URLScan? Our initial testing showed some problems with URLScan and one of our web-services, and we'd rather avoid installing an entire tool just to remove one header.
