Well, I'm a little bit piddled, so I'll keep it short and sweet :

PHP is fast... ASP is slow.

1,
ASP is running on M$ IIS
PHP is running on Apache

2,
ASP can use such script language as VBScript, JScript, even Perl
PHP now has its own script(the grammar is like C/C++), doesn't support more (maybe the new verison will support other scripts).

3,
ASP can use components registered on IIS, but PHP only can use Class which is defined by PHPself, can't use C/C++/Java components or classes

So:

PHP can only replace the Perl CGI or ASP. It can not replace Netscape Liveware or Javaservlet or ISAPI this kind of things.
Since it lacks of good feature like Database connection pool and fast speed.
It also lacks the function like using server Object in ASP or using liveConnect (java object) in Liveware. So, the performace is not good for PHP to call C/C++/Java function.
 
But, establish a site that originally use simple ASP can use PHP now.

BUT: 
PHP is young and open source, so it will be much more powerful than ASP in coming years, and it will be supported by more and more web server

Haha....I agree with gravity.....ASP is sooooo slowww....PHP is a hell of a lot faster, but then again we're talking about a Microsoft Product....so. ;)

Oh, and another thing, the support and manuals of php (see http://www.php.net) are a lot better than ASP.

PS: freshmeat, good call there, my man! ;)
