So let's do something about it!  I have already reserved space on
SourceForge for the user guide, but I am willing to expand this
chapter by chapter into a full guide from installation to customizing.

If you (and everyone else) can keep notes of what you needed to do,
that is 80% of the way to producing a new installation guide.  If
we can compile these tips, we can get this going fairly quickly.

One possibility is to use the SourceForge website to run a FAQ-o-Matic
where people can ask questions and others can insert the answers
eventually leading to a large (though largely disorganized) searchable
guide.

and when you do understand, try to rephrase it into words which other
newbies might understand and let's get it into the guide book!
