Well, in one hour I went from un-tarring the files to writing my first PHP ever.
So XAMPP definitely works on the EEEPC.
I had hoped to use a USB flash drive to store my content, and that part seems to be working correctly - for the moment, anyway.
I knew enough SQL to use phpmyadmin to set up a sample table. If necessary, I can make database-driven PHP.
However, I desire advice on how to best develop a body of mathematical equations in the system.
I plan to use the system as a wiki, if possible. I know that some people use PMwiki with a removable USB flash drive, and I had planned to follow that route.
I plan to learn PHP from tutorials such as
and try to supplement the PMWiki functions with customized PHP to display the special mathematical symbols.
Does that sound like a reasonable course of action, or I am overlooking obvious difficulties?
Ideally, if there were something like MathML or LaTeX available in PHP, that would work well.
Thanks for any advice.
The folks at:

seem to use something called "mimetex." Would this be convenient for XAMPP? I already have PMWiki working along with XAMPP.
