My sincere thanks to all the people who have contributed to and worked on this start-up guide, especially mimosa, who did a lot of work rewriting big parts of this guide and helped cleaning it up.

Many thanks also to tsuren, jrd, akuna, and maximus for all their hard work in the previous versions of this guide.
