Moodle's wiki is based on ErfurtWiki, which is an implementation of the WikiWikiWeb hypertext system. It allows simple collaborative editing and creation of web pages.

Fantastico is an automatic installer for open source scripts such as Moodle. When you use it, Fantastico will install Moodle in less than five minutes, including setting up the Cron.
Fantastico is a service or feature provided by web hosting companies. You cannot get it yourself. If you cannot use a Moodle partner (the best solution!) for hosting your Moodle site, then look for a hosting service that has Fantastico--usually a feature included in the cPanel. A cPanel is the adminstration interface that you use to set up your site.
To find a hosting service with Fantastico, you can do a Google search, or look on a variety of sites that rate the hosting services. If you see a good hosting service, then check the feature list. If it does not include Fantastico, I recommend trying another hosting service.
Note that Fantastico takes up to six weeks to add new releases of Moodle. But upgrading is surprisingly easy.

Firefox (formerly Firebird) is a web browser, based on Mozilla (but with all the non-browser stuf in Mozilla taken out). It's still in development, but is already very stable, usable and full of features.
Firefox makes a good replacement for Internet Explorer on Windows platforms.

The front page is the initial page seen by someone reaching a Moodle site. It is not the home page for a course or classroom, but rather for the whole site.
The site settings determine which user roles can reach it. For example, the demo.moodle.org allows visitors (guests) to see it's front page and asks them to log in. A user clicking on the course is taken to the "Returning to this website" Moodle login in screen. Other sites may require a login before showing the front page.
Many functions of a front page are similar to those found in a course. The administration block will allow topics to be added to a Front Page.
File Transfer Protocol - a method of copying files from one computer to another. For example, you might FTP your Moodle files from your home computer to your web server.
