The first plugin that you should install is the One Click Updater. Do that first because once you do that you will be able to load all the other plugins and themes without going through the hassle of ftp.

Once the One Click Update is installed, you will note in the plugins category in the left navigation tower in your WordPress Admin area there is a link called add plugin. Use the YYYY and load the plugins directly from your computer.

With the plugins all in one directory on your computer, you do not have to waste time finding url's to the various plugins. This is particularly important if you are going to set up a series of min-businesses, or a web ring, using blogs. You have everything in one place and the installation job is made easy.
