You've done a terriffic job there - sorry if my oroginal mail soundsd like
i'd want to step on your toed!

What I'd like to see is that most the information in our
htdocs/Documentation (and some other sources[*]) tree goes into this guide
in the one or other form, and that we put it there then. 

What about a PostScript/PDF version of your book - assuming that you 're
using DocBook, that's possible, no?

The installation section looks a bit i386-centric. Are there plans to
reserve places for instructions for other archs? Maybe also in some other
sections (network device names in the networking section come to mind...)
