    I am wanting to show only the most recent post in it's entirety, then have the rest of the most recent posts show as summaries. How do I go about doing that? I am a NOVICE so please provide step by step instructions on how to do this. Thank you!

    details depend on your used theme.

    general and most basic, try to locate the code:
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    in your theme's index template, and change it for example to:

    <?php if( $wp_query->current_post == 0 ) : the_content();
    else : the_excerpt();
    endif; ?>
