For Grok, just go to the 'download' page on grok.zope.org (or for a more extensive introduction, the first section of the tutorial). It will tell you all you need to know to install Grok. We could use more documentation on how to proceed after that using buildout, though. The Zope 3 you'll end up installing for Grok will end up differently than if you install Zope 3 some other way, as Grok requires slightly different versions of many libraries. You can set up your buildout configuration in such a way that if there is a version of a library to reuse, it will, so it won't re-download it if it's not needed. grokproject in fact does this for you too (a shared buildout-eggs directory is created). The other methods of installing Zope 3 are different, but I think we have reasonable install documentation for Grok at least. This is probably related to the focus Grok has on helping beginners get up to speed (and making life easier for experts). If you have any problems or feedback to the Grok installation procedure, we hope to hear from you in grok-dev!
