There are some bugs in the version of the forum that this site is running - I'll try and upgrade it tomorrow, which should fix the avatar issue.

Don't quite understand the install issue... what is the root domain for the test site? http://www.radio-world.org/test ?

and in the test folder you have a copy of the index.php from Jojo/_www?
and the test folder is writable?

and what happens when you browse to that url? (http://www.radio-world.org/test)

You can download the video from here:
http://www.jojocms.org/downloads/videos/install1.swf

to install you need a copy of index.php in a writeable folder that will be your web root.

you need another writeable folder (empty) which will store the site files - this should be outside the web root folder

you need the Jojo folder

and you need an empty database setup for Jojo to use.

when you have those things, browse to your site address

it will ask to generate an .htaccess file in the root folder and then ask you for the locations of the other folders and the database

then it will generate the config file and run the installer and setup.

Once the install is complete you should be able to make the root folder read-only.

i think your problem is that paths to the folders all need to be absolute not relative, so instead of /public_html/testcms..
if you're on a linux host it'll be something like
Jojo Base Directory:
/home/youraccount/public_html/test

then in config
webdir:
/home/youraccount/public_html/testcms
site files:
/home/youraccount/public_html/mysite

you need to find out what the absolute path is to your folders on your host server

On Windows servers it will be something like:
c:/htdocs/test
c:/wamp/www/test
c:/path/to/test

Just to make sure there's no confusion about what goes in each folder...

Jojo base directory is where all the jojo files are... eg
c:/path/to/your/account/private/jojocms

The web directory is the index.php file and .htaccess files are... eg
c:/path/to/your/account/public_html/test

And the mysite directory is where all the files for your site will be kept... eg
c:/path/to/your/account/private/mysite

Personally I find the following easier...
Jojo directory...
c:/path/to/webfiles/_jojocms

And then for each site... eg example.com...
c:/path/to/webfiles/example.com/web (to hold index.php etc)
c:/path/to/webfiles/example.com/data (mysite folder for files)
c:/path/to/webfiles/example.com/logs (apache log dir)

This configuration only really works if you have lots of full control over your web server, but makes everything lots easier to follow
