Hi
I've downloaded Httpd Apache 2.xx AND TOMCAT 1.4
Do I need to startup both Apache and TOMCAT? As tomcat can be a server also.
I need jsp/servlet and PHP support,thanks

OK not much to this.
Apache serves static content only. Tomcat is a servlet engine that can also serve static content. If you're just using it for development and want to get started quickly just use Tomcat. Once you're more confident then you can try integrating Tomcat and Apache.
Theres lots of documentation (downloadable) on the apache site
