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.

Just an example of what I'm talking about. After I got done reading (& responding) to this thread in the evangelism group, I dropped down to the plone.setup group to find this question:

And no, an answer to Chris Ellis's question does not belong here. ;-)

It seems somewhat disingenuous to claim "easy to install" as it's #2 "Top Question" with things like this.

I would STRONGLY suggest removing that claim.  At least for now.
