A short question:
Can Win XP act as a webserver or is IIS for XP only for developing purposes?

I believe XP Pro has full web service available.

You can use it as a fully-operable web server ... not nearly as configurable as a Server edition of Windows.

This could also be a DNS/WINS error, basically, are you able to access your computer via the WINS Name (mycpu) from the other computer via anything else? (like ping)

you may want to add the entry into your hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts).

All the suggestions are correct. I have also encountered the same problem. One quick solution is to change the name of the index.asp to default.asp. :) That is what I did and it turned out fine.
