Isn't really much installing to it.  Unzip the file, edit the config
file according to the documentation, index the documents (swish-e -c
user.config), install a front end script: one you have written, one
listed at the Berkeley site, etc.  Installing a script is probably the
hardest part.  But, explaining that's probably best left to the
documentation for whichever server is being used (MS-IIS?).  I think IIS
has PERL support included, so that may be an easy option.

There is a nice QuickStart guide that isn't really OS specific:

The documentation for SWISH-E under Windows is the same as Unix.  The
only differences deal with the file naming schemes in Win32 and Unix (\
vs / and such).  I think those differences are briefly outlined in the
default user.config

Windows Packages:

   I'll try to build SWISH-E 2.0.1 for Windows sometime tonight.  I just
realized I only have 2.0 beta 4 available.

Front End Scripts:
