i'd like to install a bunch of separate blogs on my server
the last time i tried wpmu i had problems that no one seemed to be able to help with (http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic/595), but in the meantime i've realized that i don't necessarily need the "all under one roof" unification that wpmu offers, and that i could do what i want with the separate wp installs
my question is, how much extra overhead (physical or otherwise) am i looking at by doing a dozen different wp installs? if i eventually have two or three dozen blogs, will i have been way better off if i had gone with wpmu (assuming i could get it installed & working)? or is it not really a big difference?
if anyone has any insight or experience with this i appreciate it. with the patented 5 minute install i know it won't be a problem setting htem up, but any shortcuts in managing them would be great
