By adding files from:
       Windows 2000 Advanced Server
a workstation running:
       XP Home
seems almost able to run IIS 5.

Note that the following file exists:
   The Default Web Site is running but the
          Administrative Web Site is not.

After entering the following in IE:  
      http://localhost or http://localhost/wwwroot/index.htm
 the following message id displayed:
     The specified module could not be found.


System Event...
The server was unable to logon the Windows NT account 'IUSR_YOUR-AS3JWUWSGX' due to the following error: The specified module could not be found.  The data is the error code.
