Various improvements to GettingStarted

   . Users of recent Linux distributions and Mac OS X Snow Leopard should be able to start
up Cassandra simply by untarring and invoking `bin/cassandra -f` with root privileges. Snow
Leopard ships with Java 1.6.0 and does not require changing the `JAVA_HOME` environment variable
or adding any directory to your `PATH`. On Linux just make sure you have a working Java JDK
package installed such as the `openjdk-6-jdk` on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
  
  == Step 4: Using cqlsh ==
- `bin/cqlsh` is an interactive command line interface for Cassandra. You can define the schema
and interact with data using it. Run the following command to connect to your local Cassandra
instance:

  == Configuring Multinode Clusters ==
  Now you have single working Cassandra node. It is a Cassandra cluster which has only one
node. By adding more nodes, you can make it a multi node cluster.

  Once everything is configured and the nodes are running, use the `bin/nodetool status` utility
to verify a properly connected cluster. For example:
