You're doing great, don't worry. :-)

Tomboy Web and WebDAV are not the same thing.  The Tomboy Web sync
backend is only compatible with Snowy and Midgard2 (which you can run
on your own server) and Ubuntu One.  It doesn't use WebDAV, it uses an
HTTP-based REST API for sync.

You would have to find some way to mount your WebDAV server in
Windows, and then use the Local Directory sync backend to point to
that.  We do not support WebDAV-based sync on Windows or Mac.

The best way to do that right now is to deploy Snowy [0] on your
server, or sign up for an Ubuntu One account and use that [1].

Let me know if you have any more questions,
