Hi Justin and Warren,
Thanks for the note about WampSevrer. Looks like a great utility. I installed it without any luck. It appears to install. There's a c:\wamp\www\index.php file etc however the Wampserver won't load to configure it as per the wampserver help/instructions page. The only item to choose from the start and app menu in vista is "start wamp server". The windows icon says that wampserver is offline.
Thanks again, Mark.
