Hi there,

The steps for Windows XP are indeed different as it doesn't enable you to manage application pools as later versions of IIS do. However, it's relatively easy to configure a new site in IIS 6.

Are you doing this for educational purposes only? If so, you could either skip these steps entirely (as you won't be hosting a production site in Windows XP ever). Alternatively, you could try it out on Windows 7 in a Virtual PC environment.
