Help with USRP2 setup


I am new to this. We have recently bought a USRP2 kit. What are the
different softwares/drivers/development kits etc. we would need in order
to setup and use the USRP2. We also plan to program the fpga… what
additional tools will be needed for this?

Also, I think it is compatible with both Windows and Linux platforms.
But which one is preferred? Should I go with Windows or Linux?
