normally there isn't any big problem.
Just the enviroment like apache, php and mysql should be configured correct.
Then you can copy all files and the database to the new server, change 
domain-specific settings (including IPs, realURL, awstats (if used), 
baseURL, ...) to the new servers values.
Without experience perhaps you don't succeed immediately but checking 
logs and shown messages while trying the page you get enough hints to 
get all required settings.

For the case you wanna change something in your configuration of TYPO3:
Finish it before migrating or do it afterwards but don't connect it 
because else you'll have it much harder to find faults.

I'm using nearly always windows-installations for development and copy 
it to unix/linux-servers - no problem.

For the case that you don't succeed you can call for help in this list 
or me personally - my hourly price isn't so much and normally it's done 

MUST have for migrating: phpmyadmin, ftp (or direct file-access), and 
perhaps console (normally I don't need it).
