Simplest is to buy a full installation service.  That's not the
cheapest, though.

The cheapest, easiest approach is to start with debian Linux stable
and follow its installation manual, then follow the koha-debian
installation manual on www.kohadocs.org.

I don't know about others, but I ignore most support requests for the
Win32 version because I don't know it.  Also, Win32 appears to be at
koha 2.2.8, whereas Linux is 2.2.9 and should soon be 2.2.10.

Hope that helps,
