             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement

    Affects Versions: 0.20.2
            Reporter: Steve McCarthy
            Priority: Minor

As a person new to Hadoop, I was walking through the Quick Start pages referenced above. 
I got stuck on the first example and had to go digging through the scripts to figure out why
it wasn't working for me.

It turns out that I didn't have the HADOOP_HOME environment variable set.  It would have saved
a lot of time if the instructions mentioned setting this variable.  

Thanks.
