Can we install OSQA on IIS7 on WIndows 2008 Server ? DO we need to install Django on windows ? (If yes please provide a step by step) Can you please provide a step by step ?
I will post another question related to linux as I am trying to follow / understand the install file.

Hey there, we have people working on the documentation as we speak. But answering to your question, is possible to run osqa on any os that runs python and django which includes windows.
To install python on windows, you would be better using an installer file, you can get it from http://www.python.org/download/. Pick the latest release from version 2.x, don't use 3.x.
After installing python you must edit your PATH environment variable to point to the python install folder, usually something like c:\python26, and also the scripts folder, usually under c:\python26\scripts . This is not a requirement but it would make the next steps easier.
Then you need to download django http://www.djangoproject.com/, unpack it somewhere and then run
python setup.py install.
After that, you have python and django installed. Hope it helps :-)EDIT: Just noticed the IIS part of the question. There's a great tutorial here:

It is clear that many users will want to run on Windows servers, so we will try to make a point of figuring out and documenting what is needed to succeed with OSQA in a Windows hosting environment.
