Jeff, Crown is not particularly hard to install with reasonably straight walls and ceilings, but cutting your corners can be tricky without a good miter saw. If you lay the crown flat on it's back to cut it, you'll need to have a compound miter saw.

If your saw will not make compound miters, you'll need to have a triangular block of wood you can clamp or screw to the fence of your saw to stabilize the crown while you cut through it sitting just like it will be attached on the wall.

Though you can butt end joints in a straight run, it's advisable to use 45 degree overlapped joints; they'll align and hide much better.
