I am unsure how IIS would react to the settings.php file being outside of the virtual directory or how to configure it.  Right now, unless you set the folder to allow for this, you cannot browse files below the root unless specifically allowed.

  -- I kind of have to disagree with this...  php files containing
sensitive data should not be in a web accessible
directory(settings.php)... If you're worried about people uploading
randscript.php or rewriting your .php files I think you have other
things you need to address like permissions.
