You can't.



It only works on Windows 2000 Pro/Server.



You'll need PWS 4.0

But even then you have to be extremely careful. WinME wasn't designed to 

handle any of the web servers. Although you can install PWS on it, you will 

run into errors, the largest of which is the general fault protection error. 

I've had many of those when I had WinME and PWS on my system.



Honestly, if you're planning on doing server programming or hosting or any 

kind of development, I would recommend Win2000 Professional. I got the 

upgrade for a couple hundred dollars, and I don't have any problems now... 

aside from the ones I generate from my code... Win2000 is MUCH more stable 

than WinME, and well worth the investment.

I agree.



Windows 2000 Professional is such an improvement over any other version of

Windows (excluding XP) that it's worth the upgrade fee.
