iis not showing in windows components

First, thank you in advance for your time.

I am running XP Pro Service Pack 2.  I want to install IIS.  When I go to Control Panel and then click on "Add / Remove Windows Components" the component dialog opens but without the iis option!?

An internet search says to edit the c:\windows\inf\sysoc.inf file and remove the "hide" option from the iis entry.  I did this and then relaunched the "Add / Remove Windows Compoents" dialog.  The iis option still doesn't show.

What should I try next?

Thank you,

It should be there under it's full name - internet information services (IIS) the 5th item from the top of the list. If it was hidden in sysoc (not normal for pro) did you reboot after changing the entry?
