Just because your webpage and your MySQL server are running on Linux doesn't
mean that you cannot connect to it using Windows.

If you need to transfer files back and forth, you can use SAMBA
(http://www.samba.org) or FTP (see your Distro's man pages for more info).

Most notably, if you are using Linux/Apache as your webserver, use your
laptop to view the webpage with a MySQL client on it to attach to the
database and Dreamweaver to write the PHP files.

Lastly, you asked what is the best distro. That IS a flame war question as
everyone has their own opinion. I like RedHat. Most like Fedora Core. You
can also get YellowDog (for Macs), Mandrake, LinSpire, whatever you
like/want.

Research is your friend. IMHO, the best site to get distros is
http://www.linuxquestions.org. They have all the distros and is one of the
best Linux sites I have found.

If you have any Linux questions, that's the place to go.

HTH,
J.R.

Hi 

Thank you for the answer

 "You can still connect with your laptop to Linux, and it would help you to
learn WHY things work, not just HOW they work."

How will I do that ? Laptop run on Windows os.

I don't want to speak out of turn, but here is the real question...

What are you more comfortable with?  

If you feel that you are more comfortable with Windows, then use Windows and
Windows 2000/2003 Server.

If you want to stretch your comfort level and think outside the box, Linux
is your choice.

Without trying to start a flame war, I think it would be easier on you in
the long run to start on Linux. Since you are a newbie willing to learn,
Config 1 would give you the option of learning a new OS, security, MySQL,
PHP, and a whole lot more not listed here. You can still connect with your
laptop to Linux, and it would help you to learn WHY things work, not just
HOW they work.

HTH,
J.R.

 Hi, I am a brand new newbie...two questions.

Question 1

What is the best configuration for using MySQL and PHP from the three
following combinations:

	#1 	OS: Linux
		WebServer: Apache
		
	#2	OS:Windows XP SP2(Family edition)
		Webserver: Apache

	#3	OS:Windows XP SP2 (Family edition)
		Webserver: Windows Server 

Or any other suggestion is welcome. That configuration will be running from
a bootable HD in a tray either from a P4 or a PIII machine.

One of my MAIN CONCERN is that I should be able to produce "demo" from my
laptop running under Windows XP SP2(family edition).

Question 2

What is the best linux distribution for running Apache - MySql - PHP

Thank you for helping me.

Excuse my english...
