I have a complete, operational (I have it running on my 2k box) set of instructions onhow to install Apache2, PHP, Perl and mySQL. www.torres.ws/dev/php Works great! No Registry settings! No files in the system directory! No duplication conf/ini files! These apps think they are running on a Un*x box and they are *very* happy! Check it out, see if it will help you. Drop me a note if you hav any questions.
