Elledan, I highly suggest that you take the time to look at Kevin's tutorial, which is the one on this site. I have taken the time to look for other tutorials on this subject, but Kevin's, by far, is the best out of all of them.
His tutorial can get a site up and running with a Content Management system in no time, as long as you spend the time to read it and try to understand it. I had NO experience with php or mysql before his tutorial, but now after about 4-5 days of studying it, I am about 50% done with a very effeciant database driven site.
All of this is just my opinion. Take it how you want.
