Well, you're already running Linux, so that's covered.
$ apt-cache search apache
apache - versatile, high-performance HTTP server
$ apt-cache search mysql
mysql-client - mysql database client binaries
mysql-server - mysql database server binaries
$ apt-cache search php
php4 - server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language (meta-package)
Granted, each of those searches returned a ton of packages that you
unfortunately have to sift through manually to find the relevant
one(s), but all the pieces are there, just not wrapped into a single
package named "LAMP". (Why? Because some of us prefer PostgreSQL or
another database over MySQL and/or Perl, Python, or Ruby over PHP.)
 Is there a switch I'm not aware of that causes a search for, say,
php to return just the actual php packages (i.e., php3 and php4) instead
of all the hundreds of phpgroupware-* and other packages that use php?
