> 1-What tools and versions do I need (MS4W, PHP, Apache, etc.)
MS4W comes with MapServer, PHP, and Apache. I also recommend trying the
MS4W add-on packages, on the ms4w download page, to help you get started:
Chameleon - easy app development
MapLab - preview/style your mapfile
OGC Workshop - OGC is a great topic for your thesis, and this
workshop is excellent
> 2-How to install them
> 3-What are the requirements for the machine
Apache can't be set up as a service on Win98...other than that I'm not
aware of any other requirements notes.
> 4-Any other important information I would apreciate
You'll find the main MapServer emailing list an excellent resource as
Search the archives first before sending. Use the ms4w list to get
started with ms4w (setup questions etc). I also recommend doing some
workshops from the most recent mapserver conference
Good luck and have fun with it.
