Updated PHP Install Guide

I'm migrating to a new server, so I took advantage of the process to update my PHP Install Guide. It's now updated for PHP 5.2.3. I modified some things, such as the list of extensions, and another troubleshooting entry, but most of it still applies.
It has attracted enough attention to have a translation. Matej in Slovenia translated it into his native tongue; you can find it in his blog: http://www.butara.si/matej/index.php/?p=33. Thanks Matej!
Thanks, as well, goes out to all those who have written in contributing tips and suggestions.

Your PHP install guide is absolutely amazing.
Now my question is this...
Have you though about doing a PEAR install guide. It is very difficult to find a comprehensive install guide. Just an idea.
Once again thank you so much for making installing PHP a breeze...
Keep up the good work.

Hi Peter,
I enjoy youre Install Guide. I have a probleem.
In the sessions folder the 0-byte files are there, but I cann't remove them as long IIS is running.I think that the problem I have is related to this. When I run the testpage it works only ones. When I push F5 the explorer hangs. When I quit the explorer and start again the testpage it looks good.

Thanx Peter,
you saved my life (mentally). I finally managed to install php on my server.
I would vote you for president if I could.
