and there are lots of distributions of these combined in one easy to
install package for Windows (Forserv, EasyPHP, AppServ).

Cant' you just use IIS? I have it set up to use PHP and MySQL - it's
very easy. Or are you using the home version of XP?

Yes. Just the home version of XP. An all in one - would be great.

I know of EasyPHP - I have it now..but it seems to not like me..I will
read up on this..The server is working - it seems MYSQL is slightly
different in Windows as opposed to Unix?

Where can I get Forserv?

www.foxserv.net but that just doesnt want to work for me. I have just
tried AppServ and it works fine - simple install too.

That's a pity. You could try getting PWS to work under XP Home, but, as
others have said, you can also just use the Windows port of Apache,
which is quite easy to get set up. (If you can get hold of a copy of
Professional PHP4, it has set-by-step guides to setting up Apache, PHP
and MySQL on Linux, Windows, and Mac.)

if you can afford to buy an old PII or something, that would be plenty for a
home test server, through red hat linux on it.

in fact, one of my old dns servers (still active today for some test
projects) is a P1-200Mhz, 1GB hard drive :)
