The plan was to do some XML magic to convert parts of the standard release
documentation (INSTALL.*) to a guide chapter. As far as I am concerned we
can ditch the installation screenshots when the chapter is made up to date
for NetBSD 2.0, because they only have little value. The user will see
exactly the same thing on his/her screen (if the screenshots are
up-to-date), so a good description of what the on-screen information means
is much more important. The screenshots are only confusing if something
changed and leaving them out is good for modem users too...

Just my 2 buckazoids ;).
