Chris wasn't seeking help he was pointing out why Plone is less  easy  
to install than we all assume it to be or at least claim it to be. I  
think it's a fair point. There are answers to everything out there on  
how to do everything with Plone and we as a community are trying to  
pull it all togeather and reduce the number of things you need to know  
to get to where you want to go.... but we're not there yet. An example  
is PloneOut... who would know from the standard Plone download page  
PloneOut is a good option if you want OOTB themes. I didn't know that  
and I've installed corporate intranets for thousands of employees.
The real question here is, do we want to promote Plone as easy to  
install even though some don't think so and because we want it to  
become so... or should we pick something more complelling that's going  
make someone like chris hang in there and push through.
What was it that made you settle on Plone in the first place Chris?
