    That is NOT how to do domain mapping. That actually adds a second network.

    Use the plugin. Follow the instructions.

    Will this just redirect the user or keep it on that domain?
    Also, I can’t add a new domain.

    It does what you want.

    When I add a new domain, nothing happens like it does in the turturial.

    When you add a new domain where?

    With the plugin? On the server?

    Gotta do all the steps.

    Will this help with my situation? I currently have two different instances of wordpress powering ajhenderson.com and danihenderson.com. I recently picked up hendersonfamilies.com and would like to be able to have a network of blogs based in hendersonfamilies.com that will link to and aggregate posts from ajhenderson.com, danihenderson.com and any posts made by other blogs that might actually be based out of hendersonfamilies.com. I am familiar with how to migrate the ajhenderson and danihenderson.com instance in to a MS configuration, but need to be able to maintain ajhenderson.com and danihenderson.com as the primary domains for those blogs while still allowing the aggregation on hendersonfamilies.com to occur.

    Is the domain mapping plugin the best way to do this or is there some other way that would be cleaner and easier? Also, can this setup be made to work with buddypress?

    @ajhenderson: Yes, the domain mapping plugin is what you want to use. You’d also benefit from looking at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/

    Also, can this setup be made to work with buddypress?

    Yes. Users would have one profile on the main domain.

    The real problem it that the main domain is hosting.johnsplanet.org, and when I make a sub domain off of johnsplanet.org, then i can’t access the dashboard, wich is a problem

    If you setup multisite with subdomains, then you need wildcard subdomains enabled on the server.

    if they aren’t then you need to switch it to subfolders (maybe). Then they will work. You can still map those.

    How do you enable wildcard domains on the server?
    I am using apache.

    Enabling wildcard subdomains depends on your host. It is a DNS change, not an Apache change. Check with your host.

    Wildcard subdomains is BOTH DNS and apache in many cases.

    Your DNS has to know to take <anything>.domain.com (which is pretty normal setup these days).

    APACHE has to know WHERE to put <anything>.domain.com (growing to be a more normal request).

    I did the DNS, I just need to know how to do apache.

    Ask your host if it’s allowed first. They should have an answer, if not directions.
