Can you install PHP on XP Home Edition?

I'm trying to teach myself PHP but all of the installation tutorials I've come across have only been for windows XP Professional. What must I do to get it to work on Home Edition?

If you want a webserver which you will, unless your are running your PHP scripts via the command line. Then download and install Apache. Apache is free to use and download from http://httpd.apache.org
TO install PHP just go to php.net and download the Zipped Binaries (NOT the installer!).
For installing Apache and PHP have a read of this thread

These install instructions are much easier to follow than anything else I've managed to find. This just makes everything so much easier.
