The way I work: I do my development on a virtualized environment: I run OpenSolaris as a guest OS under VirtualBox; that way, I can easily blow away my development/test environment or send it to other machines running VirtualBox. Then, I install the WebStack (PHP, Apache web server, MySQL), then I install Drupal using the instructions on the drupal.org web site.
Once I get my test Drupal site working, I follow these instructions to deploy to an actual production server. It makes the develop-test-deploy cycle pretty easy, and I can develop and test pretty much anywhere.
