It should be easy enough and would be very nice to have LedgerSMB
installable the same way as any other package on a debian based system,
eg Ubuntu: by simply clicking on the package, and it just happens. The
post-install scripts in the package run whatever steps are needed to set
the package up, eg as per the list noted by Bruce.

 - All shell and sql scripts need to be rerunnable, eg

   if [ -f "$vFile1" ] ; then touch "$vfile1"
   insert into table ... where (not inserted)

The scripts should be a good basis for distros based on other package
managers too.

Its better to get this built than have a mess of bits of scripts and
pseudo script code in a wiki. Look at what a mess the ubuntu and other
wikis are in. That is a very bad way to go in the medium and long term,
even if it looks attractive in the short term.
