If its windows XP HOME, No
If it's Windows XP PRO then yes...kinda
You first need to install IIS 6 , which is located on the cd, and can be installed by going to Add/Remove Programs.
Click on Add/Remove Windows Components
put a check mark in IIS
Once it's installed, then you have to do some more configuring to get it to do what you want.
NOTE: IIS is more or less for Web stuff... but I think you can use it for FTP capabilities.
go herehere for more on installing it and stuff.
If you want to have a domain - then your going to need Windows Server 2003, which installs a domain controller.
If you are looking to set up a server where people can download from you, I think the only way is using FTP , but I could be wrong..... hence the reason they have Server 2003 me thinks
Hope this helps a bit.
