Copy the rpms to a CD, install it and work on it locally using http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1. Or is it something else you're after.

hi,

the whole lot will work just fine without an internet connection.

what you need is apache web server set up and running, with php support. check your distro disks - you should find apache and the mod_php module.

you will then need mysql server, at the very least, set up and running correctly.

then, you write your web page(s), and save them into a special directory that apache uses to access the files - you'll want to check the apache configuration for more details.

then, to access those web pages on your local machine, you'd use the 'localhost' ip address (which every machine has) - 127.0.0.1, or simply 'localhost', ie
http://localhost/mypage.html
http://localhost/myphp.php
etc..

sitepoint has some good tutorials for setting up php / mysql/ apache -
