IIS in not available for any of the HOME editions, and will void your warranty from Microsoft. BUT, you can use what was provided above, just watch who you ask for assistance, as they will give you the 3rd degree about the install.

Good Luck

Or install a third party application like "Apache 2"

Its always a pain not to get the answer that you really want.
WinXP Pro is cheap to purchase, through sites that still sell it, like NewEgg.
You can pick it up from them.
If you have another computer, you can download the trial version of Windows Server 2008 R2, and use it for I think 90 days or longer.
This will teach you how to run your own server as well as give you IIS.

Good Luck
