finally, after about 3 days of figuring out how to install Magento 1.0, now i’m ready to start creating my store but still on the same dilemma from my previous magento installations, i am yet to understand the core workflow of this amazing opensource ecommerce.  My skill is in joomla site creation which also took time before i understood how it works.

Is there any documentation posted for magento beginner users?  like an idiot guide i suppose.  coming from a different platform, i am still confused on where and how to start so any help would be great. 

i plan to upload my products first once the store is ready then i can start the theme design or if there’s any other good suggestion e.g. start css theme design first before prepping up the store would be great.

anyhows, hope magento team can create step by step process of setting up the store to guide users especially that this is just a recently launched apps.
