jscript is IE's (reverse engineered) implementation of javascript ...they are almost same though there are some objects and properties that are mutually conflicting...

To elaborate on the above answers, JScript is what IE started using when they saw how popular Javascript was becoming and they wanted a piece of Netscape's pie. You don't hear it much anymore and all you really want to learn is javascript and the differences between the two browsers.
As for ASP and JSP, these are server side languages used to produce more dynamic web pages. ASP is microsoft's version (Active Server Pages) and it runs on NT and 2000 machines (Chilisoft also makes a commercial version of ASP that runs on Unix). You can use Javascript or Perl, but most people write it in VB. Step above CGI scripting and more popular and easier to use (in my opinion) than ColdFusion.
JSP is java's version called Java Server Pages. Similar concept as ASP, but of course it is not as dependent on the operating system, just on the web server (needs to be able to run JSP). JSP goes hand and hand with Servlets from what I have heard. Just starting to design in JSP but I have done a lot of ASP. The advantage of JSP is that Java is a better and more powerful language (again in my opinon) than VB and can interact with Servlets, Beans, Applets, and things of this nature.
Of the two, ASP is easier to learn, but it is more limiting, however with all the NT web servers out there, it is easy to get to and get started on it quickly. With JSP, you first need a java web server and Java is a more complicated, yet more powerful, language.
Hope that helps.
