What exactly are you trying to do? If you want to learn ASP, which I don't recommend, then WAMP is useless to you. Only Microsoft IIS will run ASP code. But, ASP is very old. I would recommend either ASP.NET, which is completely different than ASP classic, or PHP. If you want to set up IIS you can install it from the Windows CD if your version of Windows includes it. Home versions do not include IIS. WAMP will run PHP code for you.

IIS is set up to run ASP (IIS and ASP are both Microsoft-related). If you are learning ASP, then I'd suggest you look into setting up IIS instead. WAMP is Windows Apache MySQL and PHP. I haven't looked into manually installing ASP on Apache because IIS is more generally used for running ASP. What OS are you using? IIS is not available on XP Home.
