On Windows XP SP2+, the option has been split to two:

After much experimentation, I finally discovered how to install MSE on XP SP3:
1) Disable the checkboxes as described above.
2) Open MS Excel. Go to Tools -> Macro -> Microsoft Script Editor. Clicking this option will prompt installation of MSE. Install MSE.
3) Once MSE is accessible from Excel, open MSE. Go to Debugging -> Web Debugging. Clicking this option will prompt installation of MSE Web Debugging. Install it.

Once Web Debugging is ready, restart IE, and voila! Under the View menu, you'll now see the Script Debugger option.
