Hi Greg,

Glad to hear that you had a nice clean install on a Windows2000 box (we 
recently had some worries about this version of windows).

Well the mapscript that comes with ms4w works only with PHP 4.x.  I 
haven't tried to upgrade ms4w's php to 5, but if you already have, then 
you could grab the php5 mapscript binaries from 
(see "Development Version" at the bottom of the page).  Only 
mapscript_45 is available now however.

hope that helps
