Detailed guide to Drupal installation can be found here: http://drupal.org/documentation/install

Before you start there are few things to remember:

 

you will need hosting company that supports php language and mysql database. Some companies will provide this service for free (i.e http://www.000webhost.com/) , others will charge anything between £2.99 to £299 per month depending on services included.

 

Databse username and password will be required during installation. In some cases database will be set up for you and details emailed or available on the configuration page, in other cases you need to create database, user and password using sql frontend such as phpmyadmin or command line program "mysql"

 

filesystem permissions ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_permissions ) in some cases can stop your site working. You need read and write access set for particular directories.
