lightest weight web server with php / mysql support

P: n/a
I'd like to create a web server in Virtual PC that requires as little
space as possible and that supports PHP and MySQL.

I could, for example, install Windows XP, then install Apache, and then
install PHP and MySQL, but Windows XP seems like overkill since the
only thing I want out of it is a small webserver...

Get a really small linux/bsd version (eg: read the howto make a bootdisk
to get an idea of a 'small' operating system...),
add httpd (apache, lighthttpd, kernel httpd?), add mysql, add php, done.
