Drupal theming is easier than you might think.

Ok Im going to switch gears here a little bit and take a break from the install talk.  Its all categorized so dont worry we will get back to Install.

Ive heard a lot of talk about theming in Drupal and how hard it is.  You need to know php, html, css.  Well all of this is only sort of true.  You should know some of this stuff but in reality just knowing some css and html and almost no php will get you by.

Take a look at this quick drupal theme tutorial its got a great but brief explanation on what you should know about the theme files in Drupal.  Knowing this information is a must, but once you grasp how the files interact you will realize that theming a Drupal theme is little more than taking a static web page and using it as your template, and inputting a few php snippets within that template.  Okay well talk about drupal themes in more detail later just wanted to get you thinking about it.
