Install Internet Information Services (IIS). This can only be done on Professional or higher versions of Windows 2000, XP & Vista.

I know it sounds really complex, but all you have to do is put your Windows XP Operating System CD into your CD-ROM drive. Go to the Start menu, click Control Panel, and then click Add/Remove Programs. Then Select Add/Remove Windows Components, select the Internet Information Services (IIS) component, and then follow the on-screen instructions. See below for a link to Microsoft's Instructions.
