Can't install IIS

My Windows XP laptop came with SP2, but I don't have an installation disk.  I'm trying to install IIS from an XP disk (not SP2), but is asking for files like STAXMEM.DL_.  These files are already on the computer but some aren't, like some help and asp files.  I also have SP2 on a disk itself.

Any way I can get IIS running without an SP2 installation disk?

I have to say that Paul' step by step tutorial of slipstreaming at the Windows Super Site is one of the best that I've come across on the web. Highly recommended.

Have you already tried re-applying the SP2 update, then installing IIS?

Wow, that was a lot of work, but really well done.  This worked even better than previous attempts to install IIS with the original XP SP2 disk! (got errors even with that in the office).

Kudos, gecko, excellent and rapid response.  You deserve all points and more.

Only problem to the solution is that it relies on Nero / Roxio, and I had neither.  Ended up using a Nero download, but it was difficult to find either one, especially without having to pay an exorbitant price on short notice.  The solution is still excellent, but it would be nice to see if there was a "home grown" solution to burning the CD.

VerifyMe, I thought about trying to re-applyingthe SP2 update, and that might have had a chance of working, but I still think I would be prompted for a SP2 CD-ROM, which is why I didn't take that avenue.

Thanks all.  Now I can get to work - at 3:30 a.m.!
