Docs for Wordpress
Wordpress.org is where the latest software and instructions can be found, while wordpress.com is the hosting site.
Just to make that clear up front. Lots of folks seem to miss that, so I'll just point that out.
Basically, all you are going to do is download the latest version (2.0 recently came out, so if you have an older version, can it and get the fresh goodies), and then upload it to a folder on your webspace.
Run the set up, which should take like 5 minutes or something, and go.
If it looks like more than you want to fool with, there's a group of volunteers from the wordpress forums who will even do the installation for you for free.
How much better can it get?

|So, as I have a website for business with loads of spare bandwidth, could I move my blog to my business domain, and is there any advantage in doing so? I use FrontPage. |
Assuming that your web host meets the requirements (and most all of them do), yes. Your blog will exist in a separate folder from your static pages, so it wouldn't matter what software runs those. You'd even be able to tweak your blog template to compliment your static pages.
Advantages? Mostly that you can do about anything you want with the template.
Other than that, Alan, the only real advantage for moving your current blog would be that Javison would quit complaining that you're blocking him from commenting from time to time when blogger's down.
The comedy value of that argues for staying put, IMHO.
