It is all here and on the wiki... Start reading!

Also, don't bother trying to host a public server on Windows anything. If you want to host a server for the public to use, set up a system with Linux, and then compile the latest v2_0branch SVN.

Yeah. Unfortunately my Dad doesn't like Linux because he thinks is a hack and only uses default stuff so I can't get it. So that's a bit of a shame for me.
