If I may be so bold as to make a suggestion to the developers:

Add the smrsh lines to README.LINUX, and be more explicit in the "Problems"
section of INSTALL. It will help both folks who don't spend the time poring
over every word of the documentation and those of us who, after spending 24+
hours straight setting up a machine after a hard drive died, are on the edge
of exhaustion and would appreciate things being a little more obvious.
