For Windows, there is a complete "Plone" installer.
It does everything for you (installing Zope, CMF and Plone).

When you are interested in Plone, you install its installer for Windows.
On RedHat, you install Zope and then Plone (following the Plone installation

Be sure to use CMF 1.3.2, when you use your own CMF.
