How much from scratch?
I won't (not that I can't) go into installing Linux onto a box as
that's covered elsewhere.
If you want to install Xastir on Windows, that's covered in the
README.win32 document available from the Xastir home page.
If you check the binary page you'll find CD's that will let you do
the Windows install easier/faster, and even CD's that have a
runnable Linux installation with Xastir pre-installed, that won't
touch your Windows hard drive at all.
If you want to install on Linux/MacOSX/Solaris/HP-UX/FreeBSD, read
the other INSTALL and README documents there.
It's free, under the open-source GPL license.
