Apache package installation into Linux Mint

I am a newbie in Linux. I am coming from Windows XP.
I have just downloaded and installed the Linux mint 8 Helena. I am trying to install the XAMPP package so I get an Apache server setup with all needed to run a web server but the installation scrip that comes with it does not run. I have also tried to do it manually but is a nightmare for me as I am used to run just msi files.
Is there any known incompatibility between this version of Linux and the latest Xampp or am I doing anything wrong?

Why would you use XAMPP, when most distributions come with a package for Apache? If you want to use Linux, you have to do a lot of manual configuration anyway, so just grab you package manager and have it install Apache. Then take a look in your /etc/apache2 directory, it's not too hard.
