I contacted my webhost to find out on whether i can run WordPress?

I’m an absolute beginner. I want to be able to keep my site fresh and up to date with articles and images. And i’m assuming wordpress can get the job done. The thing is my site was developed using xhtml and css. How can i integrate WordPress for this site.

This is what i sent to my webhost (got this from the wordpress.org website).

I’m interested in running the open-source WordPress blogging software and I was wondering if my (www.energyworkforce.net) supported the following:

* PHP 4.3 or greater
* MySQL 4.0 or greater
* The mod_rewrite Apache module

And this is the reply i got from my webhost…

hosted under Windows Platform. It support PHP, MySQL but do not support for mod_rewrite Apache module. You might need to transfer to linux Platform.

Now what do i do? What is this mod_rewrite Apache module. What does it do? And whawwt is my next plan? Do i move to a Linux Platform as advised or can i still use WordPress with the Windows platform.

I know i’ve asked alot. Thanking you all in advanced.
