I think this usually happens when Apache is using PHP4 instead of 5. Perhaps you have both 4 and 5 on there, but .php files are executed using PHP4. I know packages like MAMP for Mac have two versions of PHP, that you can switch around. Try adding this line to your .htaccess file for where SilverStripe is installed:
AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .php
Hope this helps!

You are correct - so i wrote a patch
at the top of install.php, detect the version, and die with a useful message if it's < 5.
and move the classes to their own file (probably needs moving)
seems to me, writing a small bit of php4 compatible code in install.php will save you support requests later.

Yeah we had changed the line a while ago but somehow this patch didn't get through to the 2.0.1 release
$query = DB::query("SELECT ID FROM SiteTree WHERE URLSegment = 'about-us'");
(Please note that with the installer script parsing, it is now simply able to tell you to upgrade to PHP5. It doesn't permit you to install. But atleast you get instructions instead of a ambiguous PHP error).
PS: I commented on http://www.coffee.geek.nz/2007/04/22/silverstripe_review_attempt.html but either it now awaiting moderation, or went nowhere; I can't see my comment ;)
