    I have downloaded new release of WP 3.4.1 and it fails to go through installation setup. I opened index.php in txt editor and it seems the file is not complete. It ends at line 18 and has NO php closing tag.!?!?!?

    How are you trying to install? As That file not the one that installs your wordpress.

    No closing php tags is allowed and I think preferred now, so don't worry about that.

    To install WordPress, you need to have a MySQL database setup and have the credentials for it ready, then upload all the files to your host via FTP, then visit your site and follow the install.

    If you are trying to install locally, you need to get WAMP (Windows) or MAMP (Mac), and then extract the WordPress zip file in the WWW folder. You will need to create a database and then go to localhost/YOUR_SITE_NAME in your browser and follow the install.
