Summary: Decent material for the absolute beginner
Comment: Attempting to install Apache following the authors' instructions will not amount to getting started anytime soon. However once you get past these issues, you will find he has done a decent job of providing an entry level for the complete newbie.

Mind you, if you have any previous experience coding PHP or SQL the provided examples are not for you: buy a different book.

Summary: Great book, examples worked great on Windows
Comment: I had no problems following any of the author's steps in the book for Windows and I'm sure anyone who's competent with Windows can do the same. I didn't actually spend a whole weekend with the book as the title suggests, but each lesson takes about the amount of time prescribed and getting through the book in several evenings over the course of a week or two is pretty easy. be sure of course to get the right versions of MySQL, Apache, and PHP. The combination of the 3 can lead to problems if you don't use the exact versions with all the right patches applied as the author suggests. I had tinkered with IIS some in the past but never before had I done anything more complicated than HTML web pages. From the examples in this book, I was able to set up my own web site with a database.

Summary: Don't bother
Comment: Has the author actually tried to do a PHP/Apache installation on Windows2000? Strange he didn't come up against any of the same errors I got when I followed his instructions (several attempts)
