[Moin-user] Moin HelpOnInstalling changes

Today I completely revised the downloads page.

Before I get "reverted", let me explain my reasoning:  :-)
MoinMoin is *great* wiki software!  I discovered it using http:// 
www.wikimatrix.org and after first trying Twiki and getting  
frustrated with that software.

However, the instructions for setting up MoinMoin were pretty  
confusing.  So, I rewrote or re-factored the instructions for  
ApacheOnWin32, ApacheOnWin32withDomainAuthentication, ApacheOnMacOsx,  
and InternetInformationServer.  Now I'd like to reorganize the  
HelpOnInstalling page.  The main thing I want to change is that we  
currently have the more difficult (more generic) instructions first,  
followed by the easier step-by-step guides for specific  
configurations further down the page.

I think it makes more sense to put the easier step-by-step guides at  
the top.  Each scenario will have all the full installation  
instructions to get Moin installed in every scenario.

The idea, of course, is to make it easier for people to install and  
foster adoption.  Hope everyone else agrees.  :-)
