Sending out a bit of an SOS

The basic structure of the site is up, but I now need someone that actually knows how Drupal works to help set this thing up, and show me what to do. The unfortunate aspect of doing this stuff is that it takes an ENORMOUS amount of time. Getting this stuff up is easy. But then I need to understand what all this "taxonomy" stuff Drupal keeps throwing at me is. Might make it easier to just have someone give me the 20 minute breakdown, but then again maybe it'd be worthwhile to just read the damn documentation! But arrgh matey, we don't need no stinkin manuals, eh?!
