Hey there,

I'm in Germany (Stuttgart) I recently migrated our schools library to koha.

I think the biggest problem why koha might not be what you are lookin 
for is that it is relatively hard (in not librarian speak) to add 
entries. So while it is easy when familiar with Library systems it is 
rather hard to figure out what to put where, when you just want to add 
four books, the drilling machine and the badminton set.

Other than that the basic setup is easy. Just follow the instructions ;)

installing ubuntu linux on a machine:

or rent a VirtualServer with linux e.g. at contabo. (faster 
internetspeed, always on)

installation instructions for koha:

hope that helps
I can also try to help you but Stuttgart is a long way from you ;)
