How do I capture the system date in PHP/MySQL?

I have 2 forms. The data from form 1 gets captured in form 2 when I press submit in form 1. I have a table in form 2 which should be automatically populated with the system date. How can this be done?

Hi gamebits & Joe,
<? echo date('l dS \of F Y h:i:s A');  ?> works. None of the other suggestions do, though.
Thanks for the points and the grade.
