    Thanks for the ideas. I have redone the how-tos so there is one going to
be on the new site about installing modules. And I also have already
addressed your other idea, on the download page the installation
instructions are linked directly from the download page. :) I can't wait for
Troy to get back so he can setup on the server a way that we can view the
website before we put it on the regular server for the public to see. That
way people can make suggestions, etc. So I would love to hear more
suggestions when that happens, so stay tuned.

In Christ,
