You should start by getting a Java SDK installed and checked out on your system. Version 1.4.2 prefered. Another important question: do you already have a web server operating on this system? Which one? The exe is for Windows and manages installation. The binaries are what you want, also you will not have to compile from source, but it is handy to have if you want to investigate how it works.
