are you testing locally as in [a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\"][/a] or you mean C:\dir\dir\webroot\index.php ??? if your using c:\... then that's your problem because it's not parsing thru the webserver.. If you are using [a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\"][/a] or simular witgh the http protocal then it's down to the MIME type of the .php extentiom

in your apache config file you need to make sure you have these lines..

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

also you need

AddModule mod_php4.c

make sure there are no #'s

If all of that is there then might be worth reinstalling to see why there is still a problem with it..
