which seems kind of out of date:
> 1. It seems like it's required that the number of reduce tasks in the "Sort Data" phase
be one more than the number of keys selected in the "Range Partitioning" step, or else you
get an error like this:
> Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Can't read partitions file
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.lib.TotalOrderPartitioner.configure(
> 	... 15 more
> Caused by: Wrong number of partitions in keyset
> 	at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.lib.TotalOrderPartitioner.configure(
> 	... 15 more
> If so, it would be helpful if this was explicitly pointed out.
> 2. It recommends that you should use the "loadtable" ruby script to put data into hbase,
but if you run this on newer versions of HBase (e.g. 0.90.3) it errors: 
>     DISABLED!!!! Use completebulkload instead.  See tail of
> The instructions should probably be changed to use completebulkload instead of this script.
