    Default Windows XP IIS

    I'm working with PWS and an Access DB on Windows 98. I wanted to move everything over to a computer with Windows XP Home Edition, but apparently there is no PWS on Windows XP Home, and from what I've been reading here and elsewhere, you can't install and run PWS on Windows XP. You have to use IIS and that can only be installed on Windows XP Professional. So...Is the solution to upgrade to Windows XP Professional? Is the IIS Server part of that upgrade package? And does it work the same way as the Windows 98 PWS?
