installing mamp is pretty strait forward, download the installer form here:
http://www.mamp.info/en/

if you are familiar with XAMPP on windows, it's not really that different.

in XAMPP, it would create the site root as:
c:\xampp\htdocs

which mapped to the site address:
http://localhost

for each DW site you would create a subfolder of:
c:\xampp\htdocs

for example
c:\xampp\htdocs\site1

and adjust the web URL appropriatly:
http://localhost/site1


Same strategey applies with MAMP, the only difference is where the htdocs folder gets created.

in MAMP, the htdocs folder gets treated at:
Applications:Mamp;htdocs

create the subfolder for the site there:
Applications:Mamp;htdocs:site1

and the same web URL will link to it:
http://localhost/site1

in MAMP, go to the presences and select the ports tab to change the port used by Apache.
