Unable to install IIS on Windows XP Home Edition

Hi Mates,
I red a tutorial for installing IIS on windows XP HE, I bought a new
laptop with windows xp he, and i want to install iis on it, in the
tutorial i enter the system and make some changes then i add the
iis.dll and the iis.inf, anyway.. after some steps I reach to the
control panel and I have an IIS option, I thought it worked but when I
was not able to check the option in order to click next and continue
to the installation of the IIS.
I rebooted and remade the tutorial but i got the same problem - can't
check the option of the iis in the control panel "ADD/REMOVE WINDOWS
COMPONENTS" - what can i do ? please help me ..

Didn't you just ask this? The answer never changes -- this is
unsupported and you're on your own if it doesn't work.

"I red [sic] a tutorial for installing IIS on windows XP HE" -- where?

Thanks for the links Steven. I followed through on a bunch of them and
updated this article: http://www.aspfaq.com/2079

It now lists 5 alternative products that support ASP, and a bunch that
don't.
