You don't have to setup much. Co-Authoring should work if require checkout is set to No on the library.

Some things do stop co-authoring though; Different office versions on the editors machines. x64 version browsers or Office can also be a problem depending on patch version.

This works best for Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote. If you need co-authoring on Excel I believe the current advice is to install Office Web Apps.
