XP pro can only have 10 concurrent connections at any one time, isn't much good for a busy web site.

Hi

A Shared Web Hosting Deployment Guide for Windows 2003 can be found here:
http://www.microsoft.com/serviceproviders/microsoftsolutions/sharedhostingguide.asp

This should tell you what you need to know.

And this should help with the configuration:

IIS 6 on Windows 2003 Server: www.simongibson.com/intranet/iis6
Microsoft's iis6 site: www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/iis/default.mspx (lots of info, downloads, 'iis community')

IIS 5 on Windows 2000 Server: www.simongibson.com/intranet/iis5
Microsoft site: www.microsoft.com/windows2000/technologies/web/default.asp

You can also install IIS on WinXP Pro or Win 2k Pro.  These tutorials may also be of use for that, but consider also "Installing IIS on Windows XP Pro" at www.webwizguide.com/asp/tutorials/installing_iis_winXP_pro.asp.  For Win 2k, try "Installing IIS on Windows 2000 Pro" at www.webwizguide.com/asp/tutorials/installing_iis_win2k.asp.  Another option is "Installing IIS Server under Windows 2000 and Windows XP Pro" at
http://www.phpbuddy.com/sub_articles.php?other_articles=1.

Installing on Windows XP Home is a bit trickier.  Try www.webthang.co.uk/tuts/tuts_server/iis_xph/pippo_xp.asp.
