This is what I do on windows XP using MSVC.
bjam.exe toolset=msvc --with-test --with-filesystem --with-
program_options --with-iostreams --with-threads --prefix=C:\Developer
\VS9\boost_1_36 variant=release,debug threading=multi link=static
That will compile only some libraries and install all headers and
libraries in C:\Developer\VS9 using VS2008 Express.
If you want to use MinGW then I would replace the toolset=msvc with
toolset=gcc in the above command line.
That _should_ work as I have done this on XP a few times although I
think I download the installer from BoostPro last time..
You are not alone in trying to figure out how to compile boost..
