I would put yourself to http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html and download this, works on Linux, takes about 1 minute to setup a full Apache, Php, MySQL system, which is a bugger in Linux if you have not done it before, otherwise, you don't say what distro you are using, but http://www.howtoforge.com there are good "Prefect Setups" for Debian, Fedore and Ubuntu on there, which will get you up and running with a rather powerful Linux Webserver setup.

Most flavors of linux come with their own package management systems. These include deb, apt-get, emerge, yum, and rpm. I would suggest figuring out which system your Linux uses, and try installing with that first.

Using these package managers is usually quite easy, on Fedora installing PHP, MySQL and Apache should be as easy as:

yum install php apache2 mysql
