Actually I think it's much more difficult to set up Apache on Windows - Not actually the setting-up, but it made my whole file structure as www-folder *shock*
And I never figured out how to change that.
The easiest way is probably setting it up with suse. I left the suse train a few months ago. - But on 10.1 you can configure a lamp server in yast by clicking ok a couple of times
I haven't tried it in Ubuntu yet.
