I have been trying to set up my web server on my windows xp workstation. I need to know if anyone out there knows what steps I need to take to build the server.

Thanks.

Go to the Apache Website, download the latest version, and read the Windows and other docs on how to install.

Easy!

1. Install IIS from Add/Remove Programs, Add/REmove Windows Components, and tick Internet Information Services (IIS). Insert CD if asked.
2. It will create a folder called C:\Inetpub and C:\Inetpub\wwwroot.
3. You can create your html pages and place them in wwwroot (or in subfolders if you wish)
4. Access web server locally via http://localhost/

I think really it's Solaris you're after 8)
Only kiddin' Apache or IIS is they way to go.
Maybe worth just researching the most appropriate option for you- depending on what you intend to do with your website
