The difference between the type of documentation that Kishan made and
our official docs is something that I've been thinking about lately.
While there definitely is a place for a comprehensive install guide
that covers every single installation case, perhaps it'd be nice to have
a shorter, less intimidating version that goes through the defaults that
most brand new users would go through.

As an example of what I mean, openSUSE has some friendly,
screenshot-filled install guides that they link off of their download

one striking fact that I noticed is that even with those tall
screenshots, both of those pages are not much larger than just the table
of contents page of our install guide

Sure, those pages don't cover the install process even nearly as
completely as our docs do, but from the perspective of a new user who
just wants to go with the defaults and get to a working system, that
style of documentation seems *really* nice.

I'm very interested to hear what you guys think about that - would
Zikula perhaps make it any easier or nicer to manage smaller documents
like these?
