I need to make a website using html and css for my web class but I want to make a blog for extra credit using wordpress. The only problem is, I did a google search and couldn't find anything that would help me. What I mean by that is I am wondering if I have to have wordpress installed on my whole site or if I can instal it use a subdomain and then just linking the html pages to wordpress.

Wordpress is a blog, and it has html pages just like any other website. Installation is ridiculously easy. The documentation they provide should be adequate. All you need to do to link to it is create a hyperlink in the html page that you create.

Also, I removed your email to keep web spiders from harvesting it.

Did you check the Wordpress site? They have their "Famous 5 minute installation" on their site.
You can install it on sub-domain or domain or a sub-directory on a domain. But do not change the location after installation.

You need to understand Wordpress structure can be confusing at first but you will fall in love with it once you figure it out.

This is a site that should absolutely be in your bookmarks:
http://codex.wordpress.org/

Wordpress is considered a blog or CMS platform, basically meaning you are going to have to customize your design as a template to work with Wordpress.

If you want to just have a subdomain for your Wordpress installation you can do that without any problems.

So wordpress would be http://blog.mydomain.com but http://www.mydomain.com is your custom site.

Like i said above you only option with Wordpress is to use a template someone else made or customize your own to work with Wordpress.
There's no place like 0.0.0.0, i'm tired of being at 127.0.0.1
