How to install wordpress Locally on windows xp &vista

I am writing this post because even having a lot of knowledge over installation of wordpress manually is there on the net but many of us even do not find a full tutorial as my college juniors ask me how to install wordpess locally so that we can make modification and make extra changes without a fear that by changing this will cause down of the website online.
