Estimated Time to Get WPMU/Buddypress Up and Running?

Hi All! I am familar with Wordpress and have been customizing WP themes for a while, but am totally new to WPMU and Buddypress.

I know this kind of thing is highly variable but would really appreicate any best estimates - on time to get a basic WPMU/Buddypress site up and running?

I am getting a headache just looking at the install sequence:slight_smile: My client does not want to go with WP.MU - so I am looking at a managed dedicated server somewhere else and I will need to do the install myself. Before this, have always used small hosting setup in which Wordpress installed for me using cPanel.

Any other advice, recommendations or experience anyone has time to share - very much appreicated!
Thanks in advance!
