I would suggest downloading MiKTeX (go to
http://miktex.org/setup.html ) and the shell program TeXnicCenter
(install MiKTeX first, then download TXC from
install it --- it will find and configure your MiKTeX installation;
then you will have just to run TXC, type your text and press Ctrl+F7
to make the result and then F5 to see it).
To get the first knowledge about LaTeX, read a wonderful introduction
text The Not So Short Introduction to LaTeX which can be obtained in
many languages from http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/.
This was the text which put me from the total ignorance of what TeX
was at all, to the work.
And write here whenever you have problems.
