Yes.  I wonder how many teachers/school techs have installed Lucid?  What
options did they use? What challenges did they encounter?  What are their
needs? This info would be important info to streamline the
instructions/process.  While there is a process to report experiences with
the system, I think you are recommending an extra effort on our part
(school-based users) to report.  I think that's good.  I'll try and put more
info in the lists.

Here's a page I made on installing
It's just a start and needs to have a lot more context in it.  If anyone
gets a chance please check it out and let me know if it has any dangerous
info--especially in the partition section--before I put it on the wiki.
Probably tomorrow or the next day I'll put it on the wiki so others can
improve it too.
