While your work is appreciated, I'd like to make a suggestion:

It might be more useful to the community as a whole if you rolled that
information *back* into the wiki at tryphon, fixing mistakes, or adding
pages to expand on things that aren't easy to understand, and linking
them from passages in the pages that already exist.

The advantage of having the wiki at tryphon is that it provides one
place for people to look to find out what to do.  The reason a wiki was
chosen is that it reduces the barrier to entry for contributors just
about as far as possible.

Best of luck, and I'll probably be joining you in the puppy pile next
week; I'm going to try an install myself.
