    Okay. I opened an account on a shared host.

    Installed WordPress 3.2.1. Set it up for MultiSite using folders.

    So let's say everything is on mydomain.com.

    I went into my control panel (cpanel) and added another domain (I can host unlimited domains). I added otherdomain.com and Cpanel put the site under mydomain.com/otherdomain.com (public_html/otherdomain.com).

    I changed the dns of otherdomain.com to be the same as mydomain.com.

    I added a site in Wordpress and that's where everything burped. I added otherdomain to the site listings.

    Now what the hell do I do?

    How does typing in otherdomain.com pull up a fresh install of Wordpress?

    No man, you are doing it wrong. Multisite is working for subdomains and folders directly under the main domain! I might be wrong, but this is how I know it's done
