Yes, the installation tools might be able to be improved upon, but I'd
rather see more obvious documentation, or just a banner page at install
that says "here are the steps to..." at this point. The wishlist may be
appropriate for accomplishing this, but this request was the first one
that I've seen on this list, so I'm not sure how common the problem
really is.

I have to admit that I didn't go digging too hard for documentation and
went straight to the configuration files and figured it out for myself.
