True, but Bill has a point.  If they can't fill in "Domain Name",
"Company Name (Optional)", "City", "State", "Country", then SSL install
is the least of their problems ;-)

Seriously, it's just an issue of us naming the fields well.

I'd agree if mod_ssl is disabled by default, but if it is, why are they
downloading the mod_ssl-enabled installer?

The "stupid user" issue you mention is a great answer here, but not good
enough to disabled mod_ssl by default if there are seperate SSL and
non-SSL installers.
