That is a very broad question :)
Start with apache.org for FAQs on setting up Apache Win32. Easiest would be to grab the MSI.

As for other software, I guess it depends on what you want to sell ... You would certaily need some monitoring software ... there are loads of titles out there...

Setting up your own webserver is one thing, but you also need to know if you can actually host it on whatever connection you got, I assume you already have an interent connection and want to host websites on that?

If so, first check if port 80 is open

If not, check in your modem or router if you can open it (port forward or NAT), if not, check if your ISP allows you to host on Port 80.

When you say you already have an DNS, do you mean you have your own DNS server, or what?
Like af500 said, this is a very broad question, if you actually came with some specific problems it would be easier to help.

Well after you check what everyone above said and everything is ok for you to procceed. Then my suggestion would be:

webserver -  apache  - www.apache.org
database - mysql - www.mysql.com
scripting language - php - www.php.net

I've had these three setup on a windows box before and they run very well.
there are many free and gnu licences php scripts to help you throught the bulk of the set up and things like paypal could help you with payment side.

There are many other choices but these work extreamely well in my expiriance.
www.devshed.com  has great tutorials on setting something like this up.
