    It can be easily done with the latest versions of these three critters. Just goto their respective sites, find a mirror near you and download'm. For the most part just unzip'm and their installed. This is a good, super basic intro for mysql on windows: http://www.analysisandsolutions.com/code/mybasic.htm
    Configuring PHP and Apache is a little trickier, but this tutorial will make it a snap. http://www.thickbook.com/extra/php_apachephp4_win.phtml

    The only thing is that PHP4 comes with mysql support built in so DO NOT uncomment the line in the PHP.ini file about the mysql.dll. If you do, all your php pages will have an extra content header appear at the top of them above the <html> tag.

    Have fun.

    http://www.firepages.com.au/php.php3 - follow the apache link

    MySQL/Apache/PHP4/phpMyAdmin - 1 big zip preconfigured and ready to go

    (win98 users seem to be having a lot more success with this than Win95)
