A good apache/php/mysql installation tutorial: http://www.philbrodeur.com/tutorials/server2/

thanks for the link, it is really a good one.....
there's also a good apache/mysql/php install at http://www.apachefriends.org and another one at http://www.easyphp.org
I think apachefriends is better.
As for PHP, the documentation on the official http://www.php.net site is great.

They are quite easy these days because they all have installers that guide you though it.
If you want easier options then checkout a complete package

It should be enabled by default. If not there should be a shortcut in the wamp start menu folder to start apache and register it as a service.
There may also be a batch file for it in wamp's program files folder.
If not you can register it manually
