LATEX - a complete setup for Windows

Description from the author: To use LATEX is one thing, an very qualitative introductions exist for that. But what do you need for installing a LATEX system on Windows? What do I do with MiKTEX, why do I need Ghostscript, what?s TeXnicCenter, and why many people favor Emacs, and above all, how does everything fit together? The information often has to be collected from various different sources, and sometimes some parts seem not to match, while one only has searched in the wrong place. This tutorial shall save the search an show step by step what you need and how to setup and use the individual components.
