On PHPMaster.com today there's a new tutorial posted helping you get started with the Fuel CMS (not related to the Fuel PHP framework), a CodeIgniter-based content management system.

When you hear the abbreviation CMS, you probably think about Drupal, Joomla, and even WordPress. However, there are alternatives to those heavy hitters if you want something more lightweight or flexible. If you're look a simple administration interface, or integrate custom application code into the site, then I suggest exploring Fuel CMS. In this two-part series I'll discuss some concepts of Fuel CMS. In this part I'll talk about its installation and how to set up views. In the second part I'll talk about writing a Fuel CMS module.

This first of the two articles starts with an overview of the CMS, helps you get it installed (via github) and how to create some of the basics - a first page and a new view.
