If you add too many details and too many steps, you will increase the complexity and the chances of error. But it IS a COMPLETE beginner's guide, so I guess it will have to grow to the size of a telephone directory that nobody will read, to assure that it covers all odd and unlikely corner cases, and so that we can answer all requests for assistance with RTFM answers.
LOL, I'm doing my best to collect every error made by users and add something in the guide so...YES, it'll became a telephone directory (unless I get tired...)!
