First off, thanks so much for the free support!
I hate to sound moronic, but every time I install
a tar.gz or zip I get lost quickly. I have extracted the files to c:/wordpress, and created the wp-config.php file within this directory using the template provided. I don't know where to go from here, and am simply trying to post something at the tribrown.org website, and right now I have the option to save and continue editing, and to save but not to publish anything. I would like to finish the installation, be able to publish, etc. I really appreciate your time and effort, I realize how much work this is, and it is a testament to your dedication that you offer help to whoever needs.
