How can I test ASPs?

I have a PC running Win XP Home and want to learn how to write ASPs.
In order to test them I think I need a web server installed on my PC. Since
I don't believe IIS can be run under Win XP Home I downloaded and
installed the Apache web server. I'm stuck at this point and would appreciate
opinions on whether I am on the right track, and, if so, advice on the following.

1. Having written a test asp page how do I use Apache to test it?

2. Can Apache handle VBScript on an ASP page? From the info on the
Apache web site I don't think it can.

Thanks for any advice.

You need IIS to run ASP pages.
I understand that you can get software from a company called ChiliSoft that
allows it to run on Apache.

Actualy, it doesn't talk about WinXP Home edition, and to make things worse
it seems to be hooked on MySQL.

There is somewhere on the web a way to 'fake' PWS/IIS to install onto XP
Home, but its is not recommended. You'd be better upgrading to XP Pro.

Try this 15 minute tutorial. It will show you how to setup PWS (personal
web server) on your system.
