    Looking to get your server publicly accessible, WordPress installed in IIS7, or both?

    both

    also see if the guide I linked will do that for me or is that guide only for localhost or editing site locally

    An ok guide, looks like they use a WAMP install to satisfy the PHP and MySQL need, though configuration of PHP still needs to be done with IIS and MySQL can be easily be installed separately.

    Was going to link you to the PHP FastCGI install guide at iis.net, but it looks like their new Web Platform Installer will do it all for you, including the WordPress install.

    http://php.iis.net/

    Haven't used it before, so I went looking for opinions:

    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2009/06/02/microsoft-web-platform-installer.aspx

    Not bad. I'd try it out if I wasn't already using a Linux box for dev.

    To make it public you'll need to forward port 80 on your router to your 2008 box. Many have support for dynamic dns, which will allow you to use a domain name with a dynamic ip.
