Suppose the customer doesn't have autoplay enabled and doesn't know how to install SQL Server 2008.

The obvious place to look is Readme.htm. This says to install BOL (which is Catch-22 for someone looking for installation guidance), but fortunately it also points to BOL on MSDN.

But the "Initial Installation" section of BOL is still quite frustrating.

Thank you for your feedback. We will look at revising the Readme article in the future version.
