You need an isapi plugin for mimicking the proxy and reversed proxy behaviour 
of apache. That way you can redirect to seaside running on some local port, 
and you can split of static (css served by iis) and dynamic (seaside) content.

We use isapi_rewrite from helicontech (http://www.helicontech.com), and it's 
been working perfect for us for some years now. It's not free, however. There 
are free alternatives, just google a bit. 

Kind regards,
