I'd like to use WP to manage my whole site, not just the blog. I don't want the blog to appear on the home page, but instead at mydomain.com/blog.

What I've done so far under Settings/Reading is to change the "Front page displays" from the default of "Your latest posts" to the other option, "A static page". So that allows me to have a static page for my homepage, which is what I want.

Now how do I go about getting the blog portion of my site (posts) to live at mydomain.com/blog ?

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Check out the Codex, specifically step 2.

What you need to do is create a new page, name it "Blog". Make sure the permalink is http://xxxx.com/blog. Then, in Settings > Reading, select that page as your posts page.
