[mapserver-users] beginner getting started

I have been asked by the boss to develop some new marketable GIS skills.
Our company does a lot of work in the transportation industry. One task
in our transportation work is to do public involvement. So I have
suggested developing project websites with web-based project mapping
using MapServer, which I was introduced to at an ArcView training. To
assess the usability of the software, I wanted to implement a test to
show the boss. Unfortunately, my programming experience is limited to a
bit of avenue, AML, VB, and html, none of which I would say I am fluent
in. Fortunately, the description of the software notes that programming
is not required for basic use.
I apologize for my novice questions, but I am having some problems off
the bat. I have downloaded the newest version (3.6.3) and the demo, but
have not found any executables in the zips. I am assuming that this is
due to a corrupted download. I also noticed that the software is known
to run on 95, 98, and NT. I am running XP on my machine. Will this be a
problem? I can move to another machine if needed.
I hope that I am not biting off too much with this task. Luckily for me,
I am a quick learner. Would anyone out there please consider taking a
young, ambitious consultant under their wing to help him impress his
boss? I will be forever grateful.
Thanks for your time.
