Getting started with coldfusion MX in Windows ME

I am running windows ME and I just started into Coldfusion MX, but all the tutorials for getting started use Microsoft Access data source drivers. I have Microsoft Access but aparently Coldfusion MX cannot work with it in a Windows ME OS. I am trying to create a simple discussion board that runs off of my own server, but I can't even get started. Is there any other way?

Well, much to my surprise, it turns out that Windows ME is, in fact, a supported OS.

You will need to get a webserver.  Unlike Windows 2K Professional, Windows ME does not ship with a webserver.  You _might_ be able to use the Windows NT Option Pack, which includes personal web server, but I doubt it.  A much safer bet would be to use Apache (Apache is a popular open source webserver, which CFMX also supports.  You can download it from
http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi.  This page also has a patch for Windows ME.

Note, I haven't actually done this, but it is theoretically possible.
