    Hi there, I'm looking to set up my personal web server and followed the
    instructions
    Open Add or Remove Programs from the Control Panel, then click Add/Remove
    Windows Components.
    Click Next, then check the box to Internet Information Services (IIS), if
    you want to select specific components to install click Details. When you are
    ready to install, click Next.
    however - IIS was not listed as an a Windows Component option. Why is this
    so?
    How to fix?

  2. If you have Windows XP Home Edition, IIS is not available.
    Only Windows XP Professional has the optional IIS component.
    If you need IIS, then you need to upgrade to Windows XP Professional.
