MSDN says that IIS 5.0 is necessary. Is this correct or is it also working with any other webserver? Are there any other products?

IIS is necesary if you want to use the BITS downloader. You can write your own downloader (like HTTP) and use anything on the server side. Itcould be a file share too.
