Hello,

I discovered Pentaho a few months ago and I was interested in such a tool. I am now about to launch a website. I will be using CRE Loaded (an elaborated version of OS Commerce).

The website is using php and mysql.

I find pentaho's website a bit confusing...

so I downloaded the demo, 2 guides and I dont really know what to do now...

Pentaho seems to be working fine as I can see a lot in the demo files.

So my questions would be:
How do I get pentaho to work? how do I set up a data feed from my Mysql database to Pentaho? Do I need to install all additional softwares (mondrian, kettle...) ?

Is the setting up something anyone could do? (seems a bit technical when I read the Mondrian pages...)

Thanks!
Have a happy festive season! :)
