Optimizing IIS for speed?

How do I set IIS 6 to maximize performance and responsiveness for a small number of users? I have an ASP.NET web application running on the intranet with lots of nested loops. When I'm testing the most CPU-intensive methods, I have to wait for over 30 seconds
for the web application to compute the result, yet Task Manager on the server shows that the system's total CPU utilization never goes above 10%

Indeed, a redesign would be the ideal solution, but given how this is an old project that will be replaced within a year, nobody is willing to invest the time and money needed to do so.
I guess what I'm looking for here is a "quick fix" solution that takes advantage of Moore's law - it's quite disappointing that there were negligible improvements in performance even though the datacenter was just upgraded from ancient Yonah-based Xeon servers
to brand new Westmere-based Xeon servers.
