[Setup] Windows: from old-style installer to Buildout installer

Dear friends,

I am running a 3.1.2 Windows2K  Plone install. 

I've installed Plone using the old non-buildout installer. I've installed
some egg products using easy_install, some old-style by copying them to the
Products folder. 

I have also installed a python lib with easy-install, but had to download
manually the egg (it is python-ldap, which gives me some compiling error if
I try to easyinstall it directly, so I had to download the binary and then
easy_install the downloaded egg).

Finally, I have created a ZEO and other Zope instances. So, my instances
homes are:

Now I am thinking about going to the buildout based installer. 

What would be the best strategy for me to do that? 

Also, I couldn't find a tutorial or something for that... If it doesn't
exists, I'd really like to contribute to write it... How could I do that?

Thank you all.
