How to Open it!

I am Prabhakaran from Mumbai(India). In a decision to switch over to the Open Source Web Development. I must have to develop a website using the Open Source Tools within a week. One of my friend suggested me to take the “Big-Leap” i.e. from Windows to Linux and also advised me to install an Open Source Web Development Software tool called LAMP. After so many complications I finally installed a linux distribution called “OpenSuse 10.2” yesterday. I installed OpenSuse 10.2 because my friend gave me the CD. But for LAMP he instructed me to search the net for it. The whole problems started there. The first information i got in the internet about the LAMP is that LAMP is not a software tool but a software bundle, also I came to know thats its an acronym for Linux, Apache, Mysql, Php/Perl. I already know that these softwares are already found in the net individualy. Since, My friend specially mentioned the 'LAMP' word. I searched for the bundle itself. After so many frustating hours of fishing in the net. I finally found a LAMP bundle called “TurnKey LAMP” from some site. Actually its an 150 MB file approx. Its in iso format. The site claimed from which I downloaded the “TurnKey LAMP” claimed that the bundle is having “Linux, Apache Server, Mysql and Php” as a bundle. But currently I am having a “OpenSuse 10.2” linux already. Since I am having another version of linux and not having any software to handle the iso files. I fear to open it. So I searched for the Individual elements i.e for Apache, Mysql and Php individually. This time I downloaded every components successfully (but dont know surely). As a fact, I am only using the Linux from yesterday only, I dont know how to install the individual components too. Wherever I searched help in Net, They are only giving some kinds of commands to execute for the installation and configuration process of all the individual components too. I request you all friends to please guide me in this problem. I have to develop small website within a week. Kindly help.
In short:
What I Want?
I want to install and configure the “TurnKey LAMP” in Opensuse 10.2., else wants a link to get a compatitable version of LAMP for opensuse 10.2 and also the instructions to install and configure., else wants to know where to get and how to install and configure all the Individual elements (Apache, Mysql, Php/perl) in Opensuse 10.2. Also dont forget me to tell how to test them finally. Thanks in advance.

Not familiar with OpenSuse (Debian admin) but I think those links should help you a lot.

Kind regards,

You do not need to go for that. If you have internet connected Suse machine then yast can help you install all the packages that you need. Just open yast, search for the packages i.e. apache, mysql, php one at a time and install them. Whatever dependencies are there would automatically be installed with them.
The funda of package manager is to solve the dependencies. If you are not sure what dependencies are, then in Linux a software can depend on other packages for it to work correctly as you want it to. And yast does just that. You will not need to install turn key lamp stack.
