I believe that NNTP is part of IIS5 (and IIS4/NT OptionPack).

There *is* an NNTP service (publishes "public folders" as NNTP groups)
as part of MSX (exchange), however I believe there is a standalone
version of the service for IIS.

Adding it on a "switched" server is not something I've done.  Normally
you'd do it via "add/remove programs", then "add/remove windows
components" (or something like that).  I'm not certain where the install
files would come from though, since I don't think a "pro" install
includes those...  You may have to re-run setup from an IIS install CD
(if such a beast exists).  On server, you'd go into "Internet
Information Services (IIS)" details (click the Details button after
selecting IIS) and check the options you want...

Sorry I can't be more specific here...

It wasn't news I was using specifically, I just wanted the server
version of IIS, which has better SSL support.

Exchange requires NT Server so you'd have to use ntswitch for that.

I've also done it the other way so I can install apps that refuse to
install on the server version (mostly companies trying to extort
ridiculous amounts of extra money for an identical product).
