I couldnt find my previous post but i just wanted to say thanks to the person who pointed out the 1 click install for wordpress. I was able to install it VERY easily. when i was done installing i thought there must be something missing couldnt be this quick but its working perfectly now.
for those of you who dont know this, you can find the wordpress 1 click install under Goodies!!
