What happened was this: we used the Docs/Drafts/ link in
the /usr/share/HTML/index.html (homepage).  If we had thought it through
better, we would have linked directly to Docs/DesktopUserGuide, then
have set up a #REDIRECT from that page to the Docs/Drafts.  Oh, well.
20/20 hindsight.

We can actually update the link in the homepage, and push out a new
package.  But that doesn't get all the people who install from the
original spin ISO.
