Been using XAMPP for a couple of years. It's an easy Windows install of 
all the web server modules that we have always had included with most 
full Linux distributions.

My Linux-on-a-stick is Puppy at just over 100MB. The rest of the stick 
it uses as the file system.
I have most of the portable apps for windows on a stick also. They run 
fine but I hadn't noticed if they were available as portable apps for Linux.
