Any questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks - love the nice arrows and highlighted areas to point out the exact things to do. This should be very helpful for people, especially those who otherwise would use Fantastico to "install" Drupal. Would you (if you haven't yet) please add a link to this in the Documentation section? You can just make a simple page, short description, and link to your guide.

Thank you for the compliment. I am trying my best to put together a good book to help ease the learning curve for newcomers. I really believe Drupal is a great platform and want to promote it as much as I can.
I did add a page to the Documentation section, thanks for the heads up.
Just a quick note to others...don't create a page in the Documentation section with an external link. I did by mistake and got a nice little email about taking it down. Although, I was only trying to help everyone out it is still considered spam. I don't blame Drupal, completely understandable...just thought I would give others the heads up.
Hm I'm going to discuss that then with the Docs team (of which I am a member). I'm not actually able to find that rule written anywhere (link please if you have it). I don't feel that's a good rule, nor is it currently treated equally between different "mediums" of information it seems (e.g. it's clearly fine to post links to off site video, off site books, etc... but not to a highly relevant off site tutorial/guide?). I know they'd prefer to have it centralized "on" drupal.org, but really that's just not possible for everyone (especially considering how much extra trouble it is to deal with adding images, setting your own book hierarchy, and potentially having others change your article in undesired ways and making extra work/maintenance for you, since every drupal.org member can edit the documentation). A side issue also is lack of any recognition for contributions to drupal.org docs toward the original author (not even a profile link), and the fact that some authors make part of their living with ad revenue of their sites, which if they aren't able to host their own content which they contribute, is taken away from them. Perhaps a solution might be a categorized "off site lessons" directory, or at least a tag on pages that lead to off-site links. On the other hand, making it simple to add images, set your own book hierarchy, etc would at least make the situation better.
Anyhow, here's not the place for me to ramble about it haha... I will look into it.
The issue and explaination is here: http://drupal.org/node/363477
I note that it doesn't seem to me that the problem is with the "external link". The problem is creating a handbook page page titled "how to do X or Y" opening the page and finding a single sentence with a link to a tutorial on a 3rd party site.
which seems like nothing more than a free ad in the drupal handbooks, the one place, imo, there should be no ads.
