You install NNTP by Add/Remove programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, highlight Application Server, click details, then highlight IIS and click details button.  You should see NNTP here.  Just click it and click OK to install.

Which version of the Exchange tools are you trying to install?
You cannot install the Exchange 2000 tools on to Windows XP. You need to use Exchange 2003 tools.

On XP you only need

- Internet Information Services Snap-In component
(You do not need to install the SMTP service as with SP2 IIS installs the SMTP bits too)
- Windows 2003 Server Admin Pack
(http://www.amset.info/exchange/tools-prereq.asp)

It doesn't need the NNTP at all.

Are you doing a custom installation? You need to select custom at the top, then install next to the system tools.

I am suddenly hearing the song "If I only had a brain" from the Wizard of Oz

When I got the selection for installation I was selecting Typical instead of custom, Typical was trying to isntall Collaboration tools as well which needed NNTP, once I chose Custom and then only selected Exchange System Management Tools it installed perfectly.

My apologies.  I just re-read your question.  On XP, just install IIS.  You shouldn't need NNTP.  Change your install to custom.
