Are there any good sites that explain the process in such a way that it can be done on a Mac without internet? I would put the installers on a USB drive and move them from an internet enabled machine.

I found this site, but it's a bit much. I'm not up for compiling things...

EDIT:

I once used MAMP and I didn't like it too much. What about the built in stuff? (which I just discovered via Google.)

edit2: XAMPP works well but I cant seem to get proper permissions for the htdocs folder. I tried chmod -R -L 775 htdocs and it is not working. I want to be able to dra and drip on finder...

What didn't you like about MAMP? It's pretty straightforward and easy to use. PS: I updated my answer. – Loïc Wolff Mar 25 '10 at 17:38
    
@dex - I didn't like MAMP because there's a pro version and a free version. The free version was nagware. I also didn't find that it worked consistently. – Moshe Mar 26 '10 at 16:25

You can use something like XAMPP or MAMP if you don't want to compile stuff.

You can copy them to a USB drive and install them to the target host.

XAMPP worked after I got the permissions set up. – Moshe Mar 26 '10 at 16:23

You could use MAMP.

Just download the .dmg file, put it on the USB drive and install it wherever you want.

EDIT:
If you don't want to use MAMP, this question answer what you want: Apache + PHP via built in Mac OS X and MySQL installed on the side.

Beat me to it. MAMP and MAMP Pro are very simple and easy to set up. – Josh K Mar 25 '10 at 17:25
