I am assuming wraith is creating an account on a share space for you not allocating/creating something on a VPS/dedicated setup

This would be correct.  I'm just setting up a share space on my dedicated server. :)

Based on this screenshot, so far, so good?

Should be good. Old days it would take 1~2 days to propagate, should be much quicker nowadays

Ok. So they'll send me an email when it's propagated?

No email, you will just notice it when site loads for you (a default/404/other page on the server instead of nothing or a namecheap place holder).

Right now I'm getting this. The username/password it's asking for will be assigned by you, wraith, right?

^ That's correct... it's already propagated :)

And not will be assigned... you should have received it in your e-mail.  Did you not receive an e-mail?  I got the admin version, so I just assumed that you had received it.  It would have come from cpanel@host2.gamera.cc, and should be entitled "New account on host2.gamera.cc (williambryanmiller.com)"  did you receive that e-mail?

Didn't get the cPanel email. Checked SPAM folder - not there, either.

Speaking of themes, wraith posted some earlier, the one I most often use is Suffusion http://aquoid.com/ and is capable of a normal blog layout, tiles, and others. It is very flexible with many possibilities. It's also an option .

Thanks, wraith!

Got setup via cPanel.

Successfully connected via FTP using Filezilla.

I've downloaded Wordpress and Suffusion.

WordPress itself needs to be installed via FTP, themes and plugins can be installed from within WordPress after it is installed.
Let me know if I can help with the install itself and of course moving forward.

EDIT: Many but not all themes and plugins can be installed from within WordPress after it is installed.

@rgdot. I downloaded version 3.5.2. I think that's the most up to date. I assume I upload to subdirectory /public_html/, correct?

Yes 3.5.2 and that's the correct directory.
However I believe the WordPress zip (and tar) will be extracted in /wordpress and not root (public_html). One would have to move the files, before or after upload depending on what is easier.
Then comes creating the database, filling in the details in wp-config and running the install script

Do I upload the Wordpress directory alongside /cgi-bin/ and my root folder /kyrathab/ ? Or do I need to go into my /kyrathab/ folder to install it?

Not sure what the /kyathab folder is? The WordPress files should be in root ( / ), one level up from where they are as of this moment (I am looking at your site)

I uploaded at the same directory depth as /cgi-bin/ (I think that's right). wraith, if you don't care to take a look at setting it up (tying it to a data base, adding Suffusion, etc), I left the password just as it was when you assigned it.

Ok, Wordpress is now uploaded to root. Beyond that, I'm out of my depth fooling with php file configs to connect to DB, etc. Like I said, if I can talk one of you guys into handling it, it'd be safer probably.

You moved it one level up from where it was? I am asking because the "/" in my previous post may be confusing (site root vs server root). Apologies if so.

The Wordpress directory is currently located at the same level as directories "public_html" and "public_ftp".
