    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..
    It has its own webserver but supports only local connections as far as i know.

    Install Frontpage, it comes with Personal Web Server that can run ASP.
