Thanks for all the input on this thread, and for the hard work trying to
make everything easier for a beginner.

I actually do really like the fact that we now start with no cores, it
was just a bit of a shock.  It sounds like it's a relatively
straightforward thing to fire off a CoreAdmin 'curl' command after
startup that will populate an example core, and the conf directory is
probably easy to locate in the download too. I just ask that this
information be added to the immediately available docs (README.txt and
similar).  I did not check the tutorial ... if it's not already there,
it probably should be.
