    You could always just use Fantastico in your control panel to install it for you. For the simpleton? I guess Joomla seems to be pretty popular and flexible.

    You don't need XAMPPto install Joomla on Linux servers. It's for Windows-based servers only.

    Like Matt said, the easiest way is to do it through Fantastico in cPanel. Few clicks of the mouse and you're done.

    Then look at the various templates available for Joomla (free and commercial) and customize your site. Google Joomla templates and you'll get tons of them. Joomla! is a good place to start learning.

    Fantastico is the blue smiley-face icon in the Software/Services tab.

    Yes, you will need an instance on each domain.
