Setting up CoursePress Pro in Multisite

Hello,

We have been trying to style CoursePress for use in our existing theme, but it is proving to be unmanageable and very difficult to configure.

I have seen in other threads that you can accomplish this through multisite, courses.mysite.com, and use the CoursePress theme there.

Can you please provide guidance on how this would be implemented including required plugins to support the multisite solution to using the CoursePress theme? We will also want to customize the fonts, colors, header and footer to match the main site, so guidance on this would be helpful as well.
