Hotwater baseboard layout

I would like to install some hotwater baseboard heaters but am unsure on how to lay them out. I am trying to do all the work myself since I live in a very rural area. I friend of mine told me the baseboards should be installed on interior walls only. Is that true? Another person claimed I need to make sure and install a baseboard under any windows. Any help and/or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Hope I am in the correct folder!

If you mean your buddy is trying to get you to mount the baseboard convectors on walls with no exterior exposure then he is flat out wrong. You want to mount the units where the coldest temperatures will occur and that is on the interior of the walls of the perimeter of the house, especially beneath windows.
