Here are the prerequisites for WebSphere Application Server. http://www-3.ibm.com/software/webservers/appserv/doc/latest/prereq.html The Library link on that page will take you to a page listing lots of documentation. The combined online InfoCenter puts a lot at your fingertips. The WebSphere Domain at www.redbooks.ibm.com provides access to some good free books, as well. Installing on Windows can be as simple as running setup (as I recall) from the install media, once you know what you want to install, and that you have a suitable environment. There are other "WebSphere" products besides the application server, e.g., Studio and Portal, to name a few, but the mostly build on are are closely related to the Application Server.
