Hi Gary,

Yes! It works quite well. The PHP install in 10.5 lacks GD library (no  
comment on where Apple's brain is)... but it can either be compiled or  
using binaries from MAMP or entropy.ch. And I've run several OS X  
servers in production for many years. It worked out well especially in  
some small higher ed shops where IT staff didn't want to really learn  
UNIX/Linux but the point-click day-to-day stuff on OS X they could  
(and did) handle.

Addi even has a handy dandy videocast how-to http://www.lullabot.com/videocast/install_local_web_server_mac_osx
