And I thought girls were catty.  ;p

Having a readme file in the directory is not particularly intuitive.  
There are probably too many readmes in the world anyway.  The easiest 
thing to do is to simply add one or two lines on the subject in the 
install text. 

See, watch.


   You can now launch your browser and point it to your Drupal site.

   Create an account and login.  The first account will automatically
   become the main administrator account.

  You will need to add a 'files' folder to your Drupal site.  This 
directory has to exist and be writable by Drupal. The default is 
yoursite.com/files .  If you put the folder anywhere else, change the 
setting appropriately in administer > settings >> File system settings 
(near the end).  See the file system settings for more details.
