Start here for Asteriskwin32, although for anything more than a 'play' system I'd recommend a 'proper' Linux-based install such as Trixbox or PBX in a flash

Oh, I see. I run several Asterisk installations on Linux but have not used the Windows-based version. Hopefully someone else will be able to assist. – Linker3000 Oct 12 '10 at 9:36
Ok For linux i read somewhere i need to create a bootable cd for installation, my doubt is suppose I have linux [ubuntu for me] installed in a drive which doesn'thave another partition, can i install it in the same partition without harming ubuntu ? – Jigar Joshi Oct 12 '10 at 9:40
You can if you install everything manually, but not from the automated install disks as they wipe the machine. I wouldn't recommend a manual install as your first step into Asterisk on Linux as there can be a high degree of tweaking required. – Linker3000 Oct 12 '10 at 10:19
Or askozia pbx ( very user friendly. – lfx Oct 12 '10 at 10:33
