If you use linux http://plone.org/documentation/tutorial/installing-plone-3-with-the-unified-installer/tutorial-all-pages
"The Unified Installer now uses buildout to configure Plone instances,
which makes it much easier for you to control add-ons and upgrade your
Plone installation." (smcmahon)  From the plone documentation

The windows installation:  http://plone.org/documentation/how-to/buildout-using-windows-installer
Obviously windows isn't as popular.  buildout is the preferred way.
