Please help I am going quite mad.

I am trying to install PHP-4.
I purchased the PHP and MySQL web development book to this end.
I am running under Win2000 and IIS.
I downloaded from the PHP web site to get the latest versions.
I first tried to do a manual installation but this appeared to fail so after
trying many things as detailed in the book I gave up and after erasing all I
had installed, used the installer program (advanced). This is giving me
exactly the same results. Namely:-
a script in the root directory (local Host) when viewed gives a copy of my
script code and nothing else. I have checked the default DBase entry is
correct (PHP/PHP.exe). The exec file Iuser_home and PHP4ts.dll has
executable set. I have started and stopped ISS many times. The PHP.INI file
is in the PHP directory. I have not modified it in any way (Yet).

Here is the script for what it's worth.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
<h2>IS IT WORKING?</h2>
?&gt; </p>

and the result is

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

I am using Internet explorer and incidentally all my ASP still work
I know I have missed something but any pointers as to what would be much
Thanks BOBG
