Try install IIS first, via the add/remove windows components option. then get in .netframework runtime, ........ and read those relevant help file to kick start.

My OS is Win XP PRO SP2. But, does anybody can connect on my website? And how?

Err. XP Pro comes with IIS 5.1 - which is a tiny scale of IIS, it has few limitations, e.g. only support 10 concurrent inbound connections, not domain/ip restriction, etc.
To make user on the net to connect to you, assuming you are on broadband,etc. when your router or modem connected to the net, your isp will assign an ip address, this is what we call public ip address, and your visitor will type this ip address to visit
your web server. with this setup, you need to configure port forwarding at your router level to forward those http request to your IIS and voila!!!
too much detail, so refer to your router doc and how to configure it.

Also hit Google, there are a number of sites that go into detail on home networking and routing.
