Except... you're missing steps. At least:


That is pretty necessary to be successful in following your howto.

I'm of the opinion that it is better to have the extra text than to have

better documentation/wiki writing skills than I could merge these two
documents into something where the short text expands out to the more
thorough longer text by clicking....
