upgrade to Windows XP Pro and install the web services. Then you basically have a full webserver (although limited on connections). You can't install it on XP Home.

You could download and install webmatrix..  http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1
It has its own webserver but supports only local connections as far as i know.
