Setting up a web server to match my host

I have a windows XP pro box in my office which I am using as a file server and I want to start using it as a web server to locally test and develop web sites. I am hoping to configure the machine to match as closely as possible the setup of my web host. My web hosts setup is here:

I have installed IIS and thats about it so far, is there some sort of package i can install or do i need to install each element separately and if so which things to i need to install?

If you stick to just asp and access, then it will be pretty much the same out-of-the-box.

If you also want to use their SQL server then you'll want to install wither MSSQL server or the express version.  If you want to use perl, then get activeperl (http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/) and if you want to use mySQL, then you willneed to install that too (www.mysql.org)
