Umh... What platform are you on?

Also remember to install the OpenAL

Then...

Re: first step and which compiler?
The 2008 version should be fine. Just remember that you can not compile FRED builds with it as it lacks the required libraries (MFC) but you can use it to compile FS Open exes. So you can make the game exes but not mission editor exes.

Re: first step and which compiler?
FRED is the mission editor. If you plan to make any changes to the code which involve mission design you'll need to be able to add them to FRED.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.
