You'll have to sort these out yourself or with the help of your operating system vendor or other support channels dedicated to that kind of thing. These issues are not about php.
i tried to install php, the make && make install command isn't working, its says that don't have a make file (i download the latest version from php.net site, the tar.gz one)
To generate the Makefile, you have to run the configure script first with whatever options you want. Most UNIX software is installed in this manner.
trying the install command (using install -p /home/nero/ php-5.3.0/ /usr/local/php/ it isnt working too
Not sure what you were trying to accomplish with this command. The "install" command is used to copy individual binary files from one place to another, but "/home/nero/php-5.3.0/" is a directory.
