Hi Jason, welcome to DreamHost.
Hopefully that won't take too long, if it takes longer than a few days or so, it is often worth sending a short note to support, as on rare occasions applications seem to get 'lost' in the machinery.
I'm sure we are all looking forward to it. Remember, there is also the wiki, which can be an excellent source of information.
