Can anyone help me on this to implement sphinx-search (on Windows Xp). or any good tutorails you please inform me thanks in advance.

Hi Ashu,

configuring and using the different full text search engines (ferret, shinx, xapian, solr...) on windows is a real pain... if need it on your win XP only for development purpose, you should consider switching to a linux development platform, or you can use our virtual development environment for Ruby on Rails, "VirtualRails" : it is delivered with sphinx up and running out of the box.

hope it will help
