Not so simple, unfortunately.
The problem is that apache needs to be told that if a .php is requested, send it to the PHP interpreter. The way to do it is to have a line like "LoadModule php5_module "/your_php_installation_path/php5apache2.dll" in httpd.conf and configure it as a MIME module. Search for tutorials on net if you want to get into that stuff.
However, if you just want to start with PHP as quickly as possibly, then you're better off installing a preconfigured Apache + PHP + mysql stack like XAMPP or WAMP -it'll have everything already configured.
