Solution 1

I would instead recommend downloading Portable XAMPP. It doesn't require installation and gives you a running Apache with MySQL and PHP installed and ready to go. This way you can concentrate on learning PHP instead of learning how to be a server administrator.
 
Once you've done that, there are many good tutorials on the net. Avoid ones that focus on PHP4. PHP5 adds object-orientation and there are far too many PHP4 programmers out there that write aweful PHP5 code.

Useful recommendation, my 5. Just PHP installation (without any Web servers) would be good to get started with PHP itself, and installing Apache with PHP is easy enough and provides comprehensive support though.

Learning the language without a web server would definitely better i.e. PHP != web programming; however good luck finding a tutorial (or book) that doesn't make that same assumption.

Thank you, Yvan. I'm not sure that learning PHP without the HTTP server is better, but it would be a useful step.
By the way, PHP is not exactly a great thing, to take it too seriously...
