Well... you could always start with the built-in Web Server that comes with XP Professional. If it's Professional that you have. In short, you should be able to go to START/CONTROL PANEL/ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS. Click on the icon for "Add/Remove Windows Components" icon along the left side of the window. After a few moments, you get a "Windows Components Wizard" Window. If you have XP Pro, you'll see an option for "Internet Information Services." If you see that, you could install that. It supports ASP. It also includes support for database connections, and mySQL should be compatible with that. Although I haven't done this, I found this tutorial for installing and connecting mySQL, although the tutorial assumes you're going to use PHP to access mySQL, not ASP.

As for learning mySQL, I'd start with the source. There's a "Getting Started" page at the mySQL Web Site. I'd definitely begin with that. A Google Search for "mySQL Tutorial" brought up lots of options from there.
