    I'm using the MAMP stack.
    I've assigned Apache to port 80
    I've assigned MySQL to port 3306

    When I point the URL to install.php
    (http://10.1.5.30/~MacBook/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php)

    It loads the file into the browser window rather than running the install.

    ??????????????????

    I can only suggest that you try asking about this on a dedicated MAMP forum.

    have u created database in mysql and directory in apache document root folder. you can try by pointing browser to http://10.1.5.30/"your wordpress directory in the apache document root folder"/wp-admin/install.php . Before you do that make sure that in wordpress directory you have copied wp-config-sample.php into wp-config.php. also wp-config has to be modified on created. you need to put databsename, host, user, password. if this all is not working then contact MAMP forum.
