upgrading php in apache

I have an apache/php/mysql set up on win2000 which I installed using an
idiot-proof
installer package (Foxserv) - it has served me well, but I need to upgrade
the PHP
(at least to 4.3.10 to match my webhost provider) and also install the GD
libraries
I have searched around , but cannot find a straigtforward explanation as to
how to go about it.
I have downloaded the appropriate (I think) stuff for php 4.3.10 and GD
but the installation instructions are baffling - with no mention of an
'upgrade' process.
I am nervous about breaking what I have, so dont want to go barging in and
start overwriting files etc..
Any pointers to a guide in plain english or other resources would be
appreciated.

If you are using an installer package, then the documentation should be
on their site.
Otherwise, there are excellent guides at
- http://www.apache.org
- http://www.php.net
- http://www.boutell.com/gd/

Google always helps, too.

Good luck !
