Pagelines and Child Themes: A Newby Questionchild themes

I have a Newby question (no doubt the first of many):
I've read that it's best to work with child themes. Having just installed WordPress/BuddyPress/PageLines, I don't even know if what's installed by default is already a child theme. My Themes admin page shows the current them as PageLines Framework. Do I need to do anything before diving it to make changes, i.e. create a child theme?
If so, could someone point me to some good beginners' resources on child themes, especially in the context of PageLines?
Thanks for your patience with me.

Here's a reference to child themes on the PageLines Wiki:

Thats correct, as long as your make your changes in the Style.less and the functions.php file within the child theme, then your changes will be protected when you update the main framework.
