How do I install IIS without physically having my Windows XP Professional CD with me?

I'm at a Microsoft conference that is training me on ASP.NET and forgot that I did not have IIS installed on my laptop (it does contain Windows XP Professional as an OS).  So when I try to install it the components back it asks me for my CD which is at home.  Now I have a host on my PC at home and I can physically see the disk in the drive back at home but the contents are so large that I can send via the file transfer.  

May I just transfer over the folder that contains the IIS components to get my IIS installed back on my laptop - if so then what is the folder that I need to transfer over?  If transfering one or two folders won't work - any ideas on how I still may install IIS in my situation?  I really would like to follow along with the coding examples provided!

>> I did not have IIS installed on my laptop
if its a laptop which came with xp preinstalled, then look for a folder called i386 either in the root directory or in the windows folder, you can point the IIS installer to this folder and it should work ok.

Hi,

If you have I386 folder of window 200 professional, window server 2003 then you can use that folder to install IIS

I'm trying to click accept Multiple solutions and give cyanit - 300 points and the rest 200 points each but it won't let me.

It totals it up and says I'm trying to give 700 points instead of 500 and it clearly happens to be wrong.  
How do I get this fixed?

you can divide the available 500 points between the experts, not more than that :)
