    Is there a specific reason for choosing MsSQL? If it's just desire to learn something new, then I think checking PostgreSQL or one of those noSQl solutions would give more benefit, as I am not aware of many PHP webapps that use MsSQL. To answer your question, it's worth checking out MsSQl server driver for PHP, there are some pretty comprehensive beginner guide to get you started.

    I don't a reason for not using WindowsXP, any system is suitable for learning process. In fact I believe, MsSQL runs only on Windows.

    WAMP stands for windows, apache, mysql and php, so yes, you need to start it to run your php app.
