How can I install IIS on Windows XP?

I purchased an HP with Windows XP SP3, and now I would like to install IIS.  However, the computer did not come with an install CD.  Where can I get the necessary files to activate the IIS?

Answer
File components to install IIS are only available on a genuine Windows XP Professional installation CD.  Sorry, no download is available.

You'll have to contact the manufacturer of your computer and request their Windows XP CD.

Note:

If you still have the SP3 file and its name is windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu.exe, then create a folder in the root of C: and name it sp3, then execute the following command: windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu.exe -x:c:\sp3

When finished extracting, there should exist c:\sp3\i386 containing the extracted files. Now you should be able to use Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components to add IIS and point it to that i386 folder. (If you have another i386 folder in the root of C:, you may want to get rid of it (unless its an SP3 i386, in which case you can install IIS from it)).
