Not much difference whether it is Windows or Linux. First understand the TDS, i.e., TeX Directory System. To understand where different types of files are kept in TeX see the tutorials prepared by TUG India (the scree version - probably Tutorial 2).

Generally the .sty file should go

\texmf\tex\latex\devnagari (you have to create the devnagari or devnag directory)

.mf & .tfm files should go to

\texmf\tex\fonts\public\... create directory with same name as above.

After placing all the files at their respective places run 'texhash'.

If it is a Windows precompiled Denvag preprocessor is there, otherwise you have to compile it for other systems (Linux etc.)

Prepare your devnagari file and save it with a .dn extension.

run devnag *.dn it creates the *.tex file

Then run latex on this file! That's it.
