Download the jboss-4.2.1.GA.zip from here
All the other releases are available at JBoss AS downloads

Simply extract the downloaded zip file to some folder on your system (I would recommend, not to have spaces in the folder name/path).

You just have to set JAVA_HOME variable. This version of JBoss requires Java 1.5. So point JAVA_HOME to JDK5 directory.

The easiest way to start JBoss is to use the run.bat file in the bin folder of the server (for linux its run.sh). To shutdown JBoss, just press Ctrl^C on the JBoss console.
The other way to start JBoss is to start it as a service.

http://localhost:8080/jmx-console will show you the JMX console of the server.

Ctrl^C is certainly not the recommended manner in which you shut down JBoss as Ctrl^C will kill the process abruptly.
The proper manner is to use the shutdown.bat or shutdown.sh which can be found in the same location as run.bat/run.sh

Ctrl^C does a graceful shutdown of JBoss. JBoss registers a signal handler that recognizes the INT signal (produced by ctrl-c) and shuts the server down gracefully.

That's definitely another option to shutdown JBoss.
