either pay a huge premium and have a website do it for you, or do it yourself

I think there's some confusion here.

Do ya'll mean a ".bit" address or an address where you can receive namecoins?

http://dot-bit.org/InstallAndConfigureNamecoin <-- a howto install and configure namecoin

http://dot-bit.org/HowToGetNamecoins <-- down at the bottom, it shows the command you want to run after getting namecoind running

it basically works the way of bitcoin w/o the gui

I followed the instruction, but it doesnt seem to work. I downloaded the file, ran it and it told me where to put the conf-file - so i did. I made a file called bitcoin.conf with this info:

rpcuser=your_user
rpcpassword=your_pass
rpcport=8336
daemon=1
server=1

With a user and pass i chose. I then ran the namecoind.exe again, but nothing happends Sad Im getting this if i terminate by ctrl+c:

"C:\Namecoin>namecoind.exe
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'DbException'
  what():  DbEnv::close: Invalid argument

well, the way it works for me on linux is:
I run namecoind, but nothing happens. This is because it is run a a daemon.
I can thin use it like (i'll try to translate to windows, i don't use windows) "C:\Namecoin\namecoind.exe help"
This connects to the running namecoind program and tells it to display the list of commands you can send.

The command that I think you want is used by someting like "C:\Namecoin\namecoind.exe getnewaddress"

If your goal is simply to have an address where you can store coins to sell for other coins or fiat then it is a lot easier to simply direct your coins to an exchange address (cryptoXchange and BTC-E both have permanent NMC addresses for deposits).  Bitcoinparking for some idiotic reason changes deposit addresses on each deposit so trying to use the same address results in your "losing" (to them) any coins sent there.

run your own namecoind?

on windows:
1. extract namecoind
2. navigate to where you extracted using cmd
3. "start namecoind"
4. wait a while (or it won't respond)
5. "namecoind getinfo"

now it's working!

yes, although you'll have to leave the console window open, or the daemon gets shut down.

you can store it in namecoin exchanges, but exchanges (in general) have a history of getting hacked.

I managed to get namecoind running on my XP laptop after about 2 hours of banging my head on the wall. my advice, is to make sure you download the most recent version, as there is an issue with the block count stopping at 19000-ish. I would also recommend namecoin GUI for ease of use. It links to your namecoind executable, and makes transactions so much smoother. It is done by GoldenBoar, and the relevant info is here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=48737.0

You pretty much have it. Just run namecoind.exe , leave the window open. Run it again, but type getnewaddress or whatever after words. Your not missing out on much though, there about worthless now.

There are some, "ahem" uses for nameceoins, and a .bit web address. C-N-C center anyone?
