I tried the WIKI long time ago (see below) but found it really hard to
work with compared to my old and proven editor (UltraEdit, no less)...

first off as you know I have discontinued building and publishing an
InnoSetup version of the CVSNT installer, so it makes sense to redo
that part of the document with better screenshots of the actual MSI
The document is only at the start dealing with the installer, once it
is installed the main part concerns configuration stuff for the CVSNT
server, so InnoSetup is not really a major issue here.

I could probably do the screenshot change given some spare time
(scarce these days).
But I have a problem with the WIKI; once upon a time I tried to
actually write and update a few pages (I did the migration page from
Linux to Windows for example). But I never got on good terms with the
WIKI editor so I preferred to hand-code HTML on my own website
If you could get me FTP access to the CVSNT server I could upload the
description pages there instead. But updating to the WIKI format and
using the browser interface to build it is not for me, I think.

It makes sense that these documents are really hosted on cvsnt.org
rather than my cryptic telia address (which also might disappear if I
change ISP).
