    Nice and easy.
    1) Pick a server that you want to run the intranet on
    2) Goto Add/Remove programs > Windows Components and install IIS
    3) Goto http://yourservername from a web browser and you should see an 'under construction' page
    4) Place your intranet files in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot on the server running IIS
    5) Create a DNS record for whatever you want to call your intranet a point it at the IIS server

    That should get you started!

    Since it's hard to tell if you are looking for how to configure the infrastructure (as Stashio answered), or how to have an application enviornment, I'll provide an answer for the second part. For a general use intranet with lots of available modules, I really like DotNetNuke ( It's an open source (free) content management system. So, if you need to allow different users to create different pages and content, it's great. To install it, just follow the Readme.txt that's in the Documentation directory after you download and unzip it.
