Bob,

I wasn't aware that packages were available to install moodle on one's own computer without the drudgery of first installing full-blown versions of Apache server, MySQL, and PHP. A program in the downloadable Mac and PC packages called XAMPP apparently takes care of these details. Am anxious to give it a try.

these are very useful packages with which to experiment and practice, but readers should beware that these easy-to-install packages should not be used for production (live) moodle sites because of security issues sad. i.e. you'll have to install the full-blown components (MySQL, PHP etc.) if you want to go live with your own moodle site.
