Umm... are you just asking how to install Apache, PHP, and MySQL on Win2k? Have you visited each website and downloaded the programs. There are instructions included with each one. It is not difficult on Win2K.

Thank you SEPODATI for your reply.I just might have discovered a workaround for this,from Apachefriends it's called xamp (opensource project) and they say,that you can install all this an win2k without hassle.Watch this out: http://www.apachefriends.org/wampp.html
But to make myself clear,I'd like to setup my staging server in a manner that suits to my hostingcompany(under linux). while stagingserver=win2k.
How would Golive be able to handle these differnt environments?

I've never used GoLive, but the HTML, PHP, and MySQL code will run the same on Win2K as it does on Linux.

Thks sepodati,I'm sure it will,but the environment on the staging server and production server will be different,the question was actually how does this fit into golive when it comes to uploading your site after testing.Understood?In this way ,before doing anything I just try to gather the info before I waste my time and install everything.
Furtermore 2 more options come to mind.Either build a small linux server box for staging choosing some configuration then hosting company.or change hosting company to win.
