How can I install IIS without the Windows XP CD?

I've bought a refurbished machine from Dell with Windows XP Professional SP3. I want to install IIS to practice with ASP.NET. To install I'm prompted to insert a CD I don't have.

"I do not know of anyway to just install IIS without the CD or any XP resources.

That being said, If this is just for practice, take a look at Cassini Personal Web Server. You can find out more information about it on Wikipedia.

This is basically the source code and the component of Visual Studio that serves up ASP.Net content (when you choose not to target IIS).

It is fully featured and fully working web server for development.

It may not have all the features of IIS, but IIS is restricted on XP anyway and this should do everything and anything you need.

Otherwise, feel free to install either Visual Studio or just Visual Studio Web Developer which can do the same."
