Discussion: Video tutorial - installing WordPress 2.5

It's great you make a video like this - and it's also great for those than understand it.
As a newbie - I know that even this - to you and others, is simple.
However - it would be a lot better if it was done step-by-step and slower, (read:more in depth), and using resources that are available to people like me. Newbies.
There are more newbies than people in the know, so why make something that looks good and sounds good, but is "way over a newbies head"? I know I am definitely NOT alone on this.
If it seems too simple for some people, at least they will have the knowledge to follow along and learn anyway.
Sorry if that put some lemon on the sugar but, it needed to be said.
I know I cannot install wp 2.5 using this video - UNFORTUNATELY.
@Steve - I've emailed you with a bit more of a detailed follow-up to the comment and to ask for more detailed feedback as to how we might make a future tutorial more beginner friendly.
Well I can tell you what isn't working: the first few steps involving the graphical portion you have to be root to put anything in /var/www so if you do this in a terminal
sudo wget http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
sudo tar -xzvf latest.tar.gz
After that follow the video from the point where the terminal is opened, if the commands don't work you need to issue a 'sudo' then command as used above.
Other than that good guide
That was nice. Thank you for sharing this one.
great post hope to see some additional comments next Tuesday…kisses
