Try Xampp. Its a package that contains everything you you need for a web server(and more), such as apache, mysql, php, cgi and stuff like that. It is already set up and working together.

You basicly just have to download and install it. Works like a clam, on both Linux, Windows and Mac.
Really great package.

In addition to the solutions already offered, you can go to http://www.3dbuzz.com sign up as a member and download their php VTMs (video tutorial magazine). They are pretty great, that's how I installed mine and learned some stuff about php.

Good luck.

I would not suggest that a beginner install php/mysql on their own comp.

The WAMP (windows/apache/mysql/php) package is great, but not if you don't know what you're doing.
At least try reading up about it more online, just google it.

For total beginners i suggest they simply find a free webhosting company (there are plenty out there who give you space for free if you don't mind a few ads showing on your pages, i recommend byethost.com

Any webhosting site that's not a microsoft site generally supports php, so then all you have to do is start writing code and uploading the files via FTP. (google, "how to ftp" if you don't know that either) Your webhost will email you your ftp information which you can apply after you learn how to.
