What do I need to know in order to install PHP nuke on my server? I'm total newbie and have never installed PHP or mySQL b4. I've just downloaded the script and there's no direction whatsoever to help me install it. I know this question is kind of lame but I don't have anybody to ask. Please tell me how do I learn? Also what is the good book to get started? (I just need to install, not writting the program). Thank you in advance

Check out www.php.net and www.mysql.com to start off with. www.wrox.com do a couple of PHP programming books which I have found useful.
Your best starting point is the manuals on the PHP and MySql sites above.
Once you have an installation of PHP & MySql that works PHP NUKE has an INSTALL file with full instructions which tell you to:
1. Create Database
2. Create tables and data
3. Edit config.php and read the comments.
