Installation Quick Start Guide

Another new project!

As many of you know, the Fedora Installation Guide is a very big book 
(about 260 pages in its PDF version). Although this is good for users 
who need to know about little-used options or who are trying to install 
Fedora under unusual circumstances, it can be intimidating for most 
people who just want to download an image file, burn it to CD, and 
install it on an ordinary desktop or laptop computer.

The Installation Quick Start Guide is a response to criticism both from 
inside and outside the Fedora community and is only a tenth the length 
of the full Installation Guide. You can read the English version here:

The document is built as much as possible from strings taken from the 
Installation Guide (and a couple from Readme-Live-Images), to avoid 
asking translators to work on basically the same material twice. This 
approach has another advantage: translations from this book can be 
carried across into the Installation Guide, providing a head start for 
teams that have not yet attacked that project.

Your help in translating this book is very much appreciated. You can 
find the project in Transifex here:

Many thanks
