Tomcat from the Apache Group is a great place to start and will work under Windows ME. All you need to do is :
(1) Install the JDK (if you don't have it already)
(2) Install the binary distribution of Tomcat by unzipping it onto your C: drive.
The latest stable release of Tomcat can be found at http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat/release/v3.2.3/bin/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3.zip
Once unzipped, just run startup from the C:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.3\bin directory and point your browser at http://localhost:8080
Have fun!
Simon
