Choosing Windows XP and IIS and enable it to run PHP

Hi, I have been installed PHP in my system (Windows XP) and the next step is
to choose a web server and enable it to run PHP. I´m trying to choose Windows
XP and IIS, I'm going to paste exactly instructions:

PHP may be installed as a CGI binary, or with the ISAPI module. In
either case, you need to start the Microsoft Management Console (may
appear as 'Internet Services Manager', either in your Windows NT 4.0
Option Pack branch or the Control Panel=>Administrative Tools under
Windows 2000/XP). Then right click on your Web server node (this will
most probably appear as 'Default Web Server'), and select
'Properties'.

I have an issue here because I can´t find the Web server node.

Can anybody help me on this??

Have you first installed IIS from the Windows Component section of Add &
Remove in the Control Panel? This is available only in the Pro version, not
in Home. Once installed, run the administrative tools and you will find
Internet Information Services in the Admin tools, and click on this will
give you the web server folders you are looking for.
