Re: Problems installing IIS component
You can use the CD for both installs as long as they're both XP Pro version of Windows. Home does not have IIS capabilities I believe.
Also, as far as getting it on your laptop, a portable CD drive will work, or if you network your desktop and laptop then you can share the desktop's CD drive and use that. When it prompts for the files, browse to where the CD is and go to the i386 directory.
Its a frigging Laptop, not a Labtop!!!!
