Apache with PHP and using MySQL setup ques. - MySQL

I am asking about installing Apache with Windows, Should it bee with a Windows Server? or would Windows XP will do? Does Apache support the load balancing feature in Windows Server? Do I install Apache and MySQL on the same system OS? or separate (consider the best practice for expandability for future)? Are there any good tutorials out there to show you how to setup it up step by step ? (I am looking to set up Apache server with PHP and using MySQL) Thanks for your help....

    What is the intended end use? an internet web server? or a local inhouse
    server?
    Why use windows at all? Why not just use a LAMP solution?

    If you must use windows WAMP is one way that is exremely easy to set up for
    local use.
    Caveat: I have no knowledge of using wamp other than locally, being on
    windows there'll be issues for sure.

    Apache runs fine on any (modern) version of Windows. However, if you want
    a server, why not go with a server version of Windows?
     

    AFAIK, the load balancing feature of Windows is TCP based, so it should
    wor. You may want to ask in an Apache or Windows form though.
     

    What are your requirements? Maximum security dictates setting up the
    database server in a different DMZ. Other than that it is just a question
    of load, and unless you are setting up the next eBay or Hotmail the same
    server probably will do fine.
     

    Try the respective websites. All three have great HOWTOs on how to set
    things up. If those (and using Google!) don't answer all questions you
    have, ask yourself if you really want to connect this to the
    hostile Internet. Seriously, all three sites have very good doentation,
    if this is not enough for you I suggest you step back, try to get a few
    good books, get some more experience and only then connect your webserver
    to the Internet.
