something like XAMPP or WAMP ?
Also is it better to go for the new Apache2 rather the version 1.3 ?
Same goes for php5 vs 4 and mysql5
Are the '5' s stable and faily bug-free
I want to get on with the installation so your suggestions are much appreciated

Nothing worng with apache 2, php 5 or mysql 5. Especially if you go for the latest STABLE or RECOMMENDED release.

Download the following versions:
PHP 5.1.5 zip package
Dont download the inataller for PHP as its is not needed. All it does is extract the files to the installation folder you choose. So the zipped package is recommended you just extract the files top where you want pHP to be installed to and your done!
If you're going to do a manual install. I would recommend you to install APache, PHP and MySQL in a file called server in the root of your HD ie (C:\Server\). That all of your Server related programs are centralised in one located and easy to get to. Thi is what your server shojld look like after install:
Apache - C:\server\Apache2
PHP - C:\server\PHP
MySQL - C:\server\MySQL
