    Codebase of WPMU aka WordPress MultiUser was merged with that of core WordPress in version 3.0. Since then, you only need to “Create a Network” from a single WP to go multisite. You only create a network (whether BP is installed or not) when you want to give your users the ability to create a blog in your multisite installation. Otherwise, stay on single WP.

    ok thanks, that’s what I thought, so WPmu or multisite is now part of the default WordPress code. And if I don’t want to allow users to create their own blogs, I can just leave the single WordPress install alone and not create a network.
