Not positive, but I remember somewhere that XP Pro comes with IIS 5.1 or something similar, but not IIS 6.0. Should be in Add/Remove Programs.

IIS versions are tied to the operating system versions.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224609

You can't install IIS6, per se, on XP (which uses 5.1) or on Windows 7 (which uses 7.5).  If you have an app that absolutely can ONLY run on IIS6, then you would need Server 2003.
