[n00b apologies] I have installed Organic Groups but am apparently too dumb to understand it.

How do I let me users create and administer their own groups? What do I need to do on the admin pages, and how do I add something on the main page to let them administer & join groups.

Sorry if this sounds dumb

Update: if they can't, and I have to - how do I add a "groups" item to the man menu and a sub-menu for each group?

once you have enabled a "content type" as "group type" you can just let your users add new content of that type and it will create new groups.

It's explained very well in this screen cast.
