How to Use the MS Chart Web Component

I am trying to implement the code found in the MS article "HOW TO: Use Server-Side Charting to Generate Charts Dynamically", which utilizes the Chart Web Component (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q244/0/49.ASP).  When I run the code, however, I get the error message:  "ActiveX component can't create object: 'OWC.Chart'".

I'm totally new to ASP coding, but is this message not similar to the type of message received when you try to run a Visual Basic ap on a workstation which is missing an .OCX file?

If so, what do I need to install on the web server before I can use this object?  If not, what should I do to get it running?

The ActiveX object needs to be installed client-side.
