Hi Aaron,

For what it's worth, I was teaching Agda at a summer school, and managed
to help (grad) students get it working on multiple OS'es.  For the most
part getting the Haskell platform, and then doing a cabal install,
worked ok, though there was a strange issue with windows that I found a
workaround for on the bug tracker.  See the installation notes here for
notes on this: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~drl/teaching/oplss13/

(I plan to make my lecture notes available soon, once I have had a
chance to polish them up.  If anyone wants an advance copy, you can
email me for the password.)
