should really read "reload" instead of "restart". Probably a minor issue for most people, but anyway.

Thanks for the review! Changed.

One of the reasons I think the document can me as short as it is now, is because there are extensive installation instructions on the ledgersmb.org site now. I think that medium is much better suited for the extensive version than the README or INSTALL files, because users can leave comments and we can have a much shorter revision cycle when needed.

Having tried to read the former README, I agree; I weren't sure which suggestions applied to which circumstances. Having a boiled-down basic instruction file, and a pointer to more info on the net is much easier for a first-time installer.

Ok. Yes, that's exactly the idea here: to have relatively simple instructions for a first-time installer and work from there. Installing LedgerSMB might not become a completely thoughtless process ever, due to the number of dependencies, some of which require a C compiler and development headers to be available on the system. But this is (hopefully) a huge step in the right direction.

Thanks again!
