To install miktex 


(I always use the basic installer, I install miktex on my account as
single user, then get the cm-super fonts with the package manager
and get the rest of the packages I need on-the-fly).

I don't have texniccenter (I'm using winedt), but I would simply
follow the instructions on http://www.texniccenter.org/ to install

Ghostscript isn't really necessary as a start, but if you want it:


Install ghostscript first, then gsview. It is a simple, standard
windows installation.
