Is it possible to run Wamp Server 2 on Linux? If its not, does anyone know a related php, MySQL, and Apache package that does run on Linux?

If you are going to run Linux, all these services are native to Linux. All you have to do is install linux (I prefer Ubuntu) and select php, apache, and mysql. Everything loads natively and you simply load up your MySQL DB and drop in the HTML in the www folders. It's actually easier to get something running on Linux than on WAMP!

If you load the Server version of Ubuntu, you can select the "LAMP" stack during install and Ubuntu will automatically load PHP, MYSQL, and Apache for you. If you install the desktop version, you simply select the options during the GUI install and you are good to go.

Linux is very easy to get running with these components.

Yep, when installing Ubuntu Server, you will auto have Apache, MySQL, and PHP, and if you like, download and install phpMyAdmin and you're on the way; also, as smccarthy945 already posted, it's very easy to get your sites up w/ LAMP ;-)
