There are two steps to installing JRuby on Windows:

* Install JVM (if it hasn't been installed already)
* Unpack JRuby

Done.

With JRuby 1.4, there's even an installer that can do those two steps
in one shot, plus tweak your PATH. And JRuby 1.4 will have a native
jruby.exe as well.

It is vastly simpler to install JRuby than you might expect :)
