Hi folks!

I haven't done anything to the installer in quite a long time.
Are there any improvements people would like to see, particularly in the 
RPM installer as that's by far the most common distribution, and is used 
by the least tech-savvy people who need the most guidance.

Today I have done some work on both the README and the QuickInstall.txt 
files, to bring the up to date and to simplify them.

Also I have documented the "./ fast" option, so people who 
read the docs know it exists, as it greatly speeds things up if you know 
what you're doing and don't need to read all the output.

But what would people like to see improved in the actual installation
