Let me start off by saying how awsome I think this all is.

Secondly I would like to thank all of the users here as well, since whenever someone asks a question there always seems to be people happy to answer. I for one love that about this site.

And thirdly, please help me. Seriously I am so confused! I've spent ages searching for a noobie guide on how to get set up and such, but I'm having a really hard time!

I've downloaded and installed the clinic thing. Its now generating things. Please forgive me and my usage of 'thing'. Seems to be my word of the day.
8 connections and its grabing blocks. I saw in a link threes like 114k blocks or something so Im guessing it climbing to that goal.
I understad how to transfer, got my address thingie, 17ASnmADV55ywezN5TjTa4uzEHCpqbJBZN and got the 0.05 freebies thingies too XD

Now this is where I get lost. Mining.
I've read through guides and such and all the command thingie but I really can't get my head round it.

This server bitcoind thing and stuff and something about a libary and .comf and Z'OMG IM FREAKING OUT!!
I tried following a guide word for word and failed.  
Is there any way you can set up the mining part without having to do the command stuff?

I've got to the point where I've copied my libary into the folder with the bitcoind thingie in there so it opens and it just says I need to create a password .conf thingie in my roaming which I've done and its still coming up with the same message....that little black box....I hate it so much!

If there has been an answer for this please forgive me, but I've been searching for ages and I always seem to end up on the same guide which is full of 'use this line here to get to this directory and more gargon'

If anyone could please help me or link me to a more idiotproof user friendly guide I would be very very thankful.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

There’s a Mining GUI that should work perfectly for you.
