well...um...OK. I did a quick revision to the install guide again -- yeah
Windows section REALLY outdated, and just kind of mentioned this page in
passing, with a link to it. I see there's a LOT to it, but, I pointed the
general user to the section 4., which I thought was pertinent and  pretty
good.

In terms of on-going maintenance of install materials, it's fine and dandy
and easy to make wiki pages for these items and just link to them from the
web based install guide page, as far as I'm concerned. This would be better
for us is many ways as we could add links to other installation stuff
volunteers have provided via either the project or ooo wiki.

This being said, a more central "page" approach might be a bit more
expected and "friendly" to users, who aren't used to going to 4 different
areas to find information. This would be off putting.
Maybe one of those things to bring up with the UX group.

So, I'm 50-50 on either approach.
