Hi Michelle,

Does greenstone allow you to run via Apache on Windows? If yes, then
http://miniserver.sf.net may be a better choice for you?

Regarding Personal Web Server, it depends on which version of Windows
you are using...

== Installing ==

If you are using a Windows-9x-based version (such as Windows-95, -98 or
-Me), you will need to install and start up something called "Personal
Web Server" (PWS).

If you are using Windows NT, you will need to install "Internet
Information Services" (IIS) from the Windows NT Option pack.

As it happens, Personal Web Server for Windows-9x is also available as
part of the Windows NT Option Pack, if you do not already have this on
CD you can download the pieces from:
http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/ntoptionpack/askwiz.asp

If you install the Option Pack from CD, you will probably need to select
a Custom installation so that you can select the Personal Web Server (or
Internet Information Server).

If you are using Windows 98 or later, you should be able to install
IIS/PWS directly from your Windows CD (Start > Settings > Control Panel
> Add/Remove Programs :: Windows Setup, or similar...). It will either
be called Personal Web Server, Internet Information Server or Internet
Information Services.

== Configuring ==

I'm sorry, I cannot recall how it worked with Windows-9x based systems,
if I remember correctly it was in the Start > Programs menu under
something like "NT Option Pack 4.0" and/or "Personal Web Server".

For Windows 2000 and I assume XP, you can right-mouse-click on "My
Computer", select "Manage" to bring up the "Computer Management"
application and step down the tree (Services and Applications > Internet
Information Services > Default Web Site).

This will allow you to configure the Internet Information Services
settings. An alternate way to do this is described at:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/iisref/htm/gs_iissnapin.asp

For Windows NT, you will need to run the IIS Management Console from
Start > Programs > Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack > Microsoft Internet
Information Server:

Good luck,
Duane
