I’m trying to install Magento via the installer with sample data for the first time and I created a database and everything, I imported the sample data in my database via sequelpro and now I need to place the media files but I can’t find the media folder or something they are talking about;

Step 3—Set up the sample media 1. Move the sample media folder into the Magento media folder for your installation If you’re using an FTP program, drop the contents of the sample media folder into the media folder for your Magento installation. If you’re using the command line, modify the following command to match your directory names: mv magento-sample-data-1.6.1.0/media/* magento/media/

2. Set the permissions on the media folder to be read and writeable. If you’re using an FTP program, set the permission for the media folder and subfolders to 755. If you’re using the command line, you can use the following command: chmod -R o+w media

I don’t know anything about command lines so I skipped that…
