RE: Fedora, Apache & PHP

Of course you can install these packages with applications such as yum, apt-get or even the add remove programs from the fedora menu. However if you are a newbie and you want to learn the NOS yourself (which is the main reason I find people use Linux distributions). You must get your hands dirty using the shell.
This is the only way you will understand how the runlevels work, where your packages are installed, the directory structure and important files that your newly installed packages use, the way that the software packages are dependent on each other, how to fix things when they go wrong and so on and so on and so on....
I have been using various Linux Distributions for over three years and have just begun to scratch the surface of its scalability, configurability and and versatility. This is not something that you should take lightly. All point click options are referenced to actual shell commands (unlike windows os'es). You will be doing yourself a grave injustice to not pickup a book and use the shell until you get a good understanding of how things come together.
That's all I have to say about that.. Good luck in your Linux endeavor.

now that is the sort of info I need... :)

However, is it possible to install packages from the desktop, or is it better to do it from the command line?

Not true, at least in Fedora Core. All you need is a single
command: yum install <packagename>.
