i've just bought PHP and MySQL web development by luke welling and laura thomson. although this book comes with the software i'm finding it difficult understanding the installation instructions for apache php and mysql and linking them together, how come there's 2 folders for each, binary and source? it might be easier if i download the software from thier respective websites and start afresh, i'm using windows 98 and just looking to build a testing platform

any suggestions?
