I may be rather dense, but as great as this demo looks etc, I have installed the software,and am in the admin area, the “backend”, and don’t have the vaguest notion how to go about setting up anything.

I have looked there and on this site, for some sort of documentation, but haven’t found any. Can someone point me to a manual of some type, or a ez startup guide.  I see categories, add new etc, but seems you would have to build the db after doing so, but I see no way to do that.

I also do not want my home page to be /magento I naturally want it to be the url of my site/index.html or index.php etc, but don’t want magento in my path.  Is there a startup guide for us less than brilliant people?  It really looks like a super product and am anxious to get going with it.  I appreciate any help

Hi Anna,

A good start will be reading the Knowledge Base (http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base) and watching screen cast (http://www.magentocommerce.com/media/screencasts)
I am sure that it will answer lots of your questions, but feel free to post any questions that will come up.

Ok thank you Lior, the KB looks to have at least a few key articles to getting started. And will watch the video. I appreciate it.

Yeah, the screencasts are a great place to start.  The Varien crew has covered a good amount of core features that you’d need to know to operate a Magento store in those videos.
