developing on an XP box and deploying to a W2K3Server?

I am deploying webapps using XP (IIS5) and deploying them to a Windows 2003
Server box (IIS6). So far so good. However, when I try to manage my w2k3
server from XP, I get an error message saying I can't manage an IIS6 box
from IIS5. Is anyone else seeing this?

Can I take my w2k3 server CDs and install IIS6 on my XP box? Do I have to
uninstall of IIS5 first?

Thanks.

Flip:

You cannot install IIS 6 on XP.

Two options:

You could use remote desktop connection to login to the 2003 machine
and manage IIS.
