I have looked on how to install and configure your IIS but there are many ways that go from very easy to very extensive. But some of those methods arn't even available when i try to do them.

So if you know how to install an IIS because I am trying to use VMWare I would appreciate it.

Some of everest:

IIS is not designed to work with XP home. If you want to make it work, there are hacks that can get it working, but it's unsupported.

Use at your own risk, and all that.

mkloe...just as a note...you do not need IIS for vmware server (i assume you got the free one for testing some live infections) the only use for IIS with vmware is for the internet management of teh vmware server...if you're installing vmware on the same machine you'll be using it from (and honestly...even if you aren't) the IIS management utility is not needed and you can choose to not install it by doing the custom installation

kunwon: good research!

that is normal...you can't install the vmware tools till you get the virtual machine built and loaded...once you get the machine built and started you click on the vm menu in the tool bar...and choose install vmware tools...it will mount an image as if it were a cd drive..and run the install for the tools...which will drastically improve your mouse and network card performance
