There are PHP 5 binaries for windows available from
http://dl.maptools.org/dl/, e.g. mapserver-4.5-win32-php5.0.3.zip:
You can run PHP as a DSO with Mapscript, it is experimental though so
report back any issues/problems.
Btw: there have been some threads on this recently (e.g. jan 05, thread
named "Mapscript: PHP5 and Windows", check out the archives).

> Did I miss anything? To summarize, I need: MapServer functioning in both
> Linux and Win32 under PHP5 in DSO mode.
