It has been a while since I set it up. Tim did so at about the same time 
and wrote down his steps to setup... but I can't find the reference to 
those instructions right now.

I've found maintenance to be low -- just have to have to start a cmd 
shell and run the buildbot slave command. However, that may be because 
the box on which it is running isn't one I use regularly, so I don't 
have to worry about accidentally killing the process, frequent reboots 
or anything like that.

I'll try to dig around and see what I can find for setup instructions.
