    Your question is a bit vague. What exaclty are you trying to do and what type of information do you need?

    The only way to do it is to grab a distro and get started. We can answer your questions as you go. Check out the distro polls in the Linux Newbie section and pick a distro that appeals to you. Next install it - note that many distros give you the option to install mysql/apache during the install.

    Debian is a great distro, one of the best in my opinion. However I don't usually recommend it to new users. You will need to have a knowledge of Linux beforehand so you know what to install to have a running system as the default install is quite minimal.

    Try starting with a distro like Fedora, openSUSE or Ubuntu. They will provide you with a fully functional system from the start to which you can add your server packages. If you still want to use Debian I would recommend either reading up a lot of their documentation or trying one of the other distros I mentioned until your are more familiar with the workings of Linux.
