Per website    Abyss Web Server supports  all editions of Windows  XP.  My questions:
1)  Can you confirm that Abyss Web Server works fine with Windows HP Home and allows to use "Classic ASP" ?
2) Any advise -- Is there another Web Server that works fine with Windows HP Home and allows to use "Classic ASP" ?

Don't know about 'better'.  I'm using XP-Pro and IIS5.1  This page mentions "Baby Web Server" which one person liked.

I recommend IIS, its free with Windows XP and you can run asp, all versions without any addon. While PHP, Perl, CF etc with a little bit work around and that better to manage also.
