the instalation instructions are complex because TeX Live can be
customized in many ways, it is possible to prepare a shared network
installation supporting many platforms from the same source etc.
However, the majority of users need just the default installation. So
what you need to recommend is the selection of the scheme to be
installed and all the rest can be left as default unless a user has
special needs.
