Hi Gena,

The full Loadstone off-line package is Winndows based and provides a 
webserver, php 5 and MySQL 4. For Linux you'll only need the contents of 
the htdocs directory and place that in the htdocs directory of a webserver 
that you have to set up yourself on Linux. I take it that most Linux 
installations provide some sort of a package manager to help you to do this.
