We are still working on it; please be patient, and remember that we are
all volunteers doing this in our spare time. :-)  Jared and I are
testing this as we go to make sure the instructions get as clear as

I noticed a lot of the material and organization has "drifted" since I
first wrote this page, making the steps very cluttered.  Jared and I are
making a concerted effort to make the workflow clickable using anchors
and clear procedural links.  Once we're finished, I think this would be
worthwhile for us to consider when revising other procedural guides.  We
are organizing this in much the way John Babich and others are talking
about organizing the DUG, where each section branches for GNOME, KDE,
and CLI.  A link at the bottom of each section directs the user within
the same branch, or for single-branch sections, includes a link for each
following branch, like this:

(This is ASCII art, so you will need to be using a fixed-width font to
view it correctly.

         -- GNOME Step 1 --                      -- GNOME Step 3
Intro --+-- KDE Step 1   --+-- Unified Step 2 --+-- KDE Step 3    ...
         -- CLI Step 1   --                      -- CLI Step 3

There should be at the end of Intro links to all three Step 1 branches.
Each Step 1 branch has a link to Step 2.  Step 2 has links to all Step 3
branches, and so forth.
