Can you not just share your CD/DVD drive with the disk in it? And run it from there?

Sorry - ignore the previous comment.

Can you not just browse to the cd share (or a shared folder with the windows cd contents copied in) when prompted?

You cannot Install IIS 6.0 on XP unless it is a "Windows XP Pro 64-bit"

i am sorry yes i need to install IIS 5
I can install it through terminal services by sharing a drive frommy local computer
but it takes too long and risk of disconnection is there.
Also i cant upload the whole XP setup which is too big almost 700MB
I want to know the files required and if i put these in a folder and give setup the path of that folder then it will install .

Can anyone tell me what files (from I386 folder) are required for IIS setup

Could you just copy the i386 folder over, that is what setup is going to look for anyway?
