	You need to follow all of the instructions in FAQ 4.27 together, 
not individually one-by-one.  And you also need to follow the 
instructions in FAQ 4.53.

	You also need to follow the instructions in FAQ 4.29.  And FAQ 
4.53 also has to be followed here, too.

	The documentation is not as good as it could be, that's certainly 
true.  However, this is a community supported open source project, 
and if there are any features lacking in the code or any gaps in the 
documentation then you are certainly welcome to make your own 
contributions and help resolve those issues.
