Overall the contents is accurate and complete. Just some small remarks.
USB thumb-drive, USB stick, USB device and USB drive is used throughout the document. Try to use one term only.
- changed these to “stick” except where it's quoted from the UNetbootin interface

C: Start Live environment First show the Live Environment and Then show the tip/remark.
2) Using mouse, select theme Again: First show Picture of select theme and Then show tip/remark
III: Install A: Installation steps 1) Initialize installer First show picture and Then show tip/remark 2) Select language First picture then tip/remark 7) Time zone First picture then tip/remark
- I think the tip/remark should precede the pic. My thinking is that people will look at the pic and just do what's there and then see the tip/remark after the fact.

The installation instructions say a USB drive is needed for installation. But only fairly modern computers have a BIOS that allows this. One of the main attractions of Bodhi is for use on old PCs so some info on installing from a CD/DVD would be helpful (assuming that is possible).
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = == =
This is what it says, I don't see a need to include installation from cd instructions as they are all over the place if you google and most users using Bodhi would know how to install from a cd without a hitch:
“Installation using another Operating System and/or via CD/DVD is also possible”
Our Bodhi 1.1.0 was upgraded to 1.2.0 (thanks to PM help from ylee, and Jeff via the Bodhi forum); it still had the older kernel after the upgrade, which may have helped, but this Wiki How-to 'Just Worked'.
Did encounter the font size problem mentioned in the Wiki - applied the fix, and then there was no problem. Works well - thanks!
We notice an even snappier response with the compositor on, and games like Supertux Kart now run well on a low-end very low power AMD K325, which does just spank an Atom dual core. The nVidia 9200 graphics driver is not essential to Bodhi, but for the games it is essential, and the kids (of all ages) do need games.
The PC is a tiny eMachines ER1401 screwed to the back of a 22” Tesco TV.
Marked it 'Right on the Money', too. One minor issue with jockey-gtk is when I tried activating the driver, it gave an error without any explanation. Realized synaptic was running, closed it and tried again. Not sure if jockey simply couldn't download something or if some lock issue with synaptic, though. I recommend people to try activating again before trying something else.
Neat article, works good, thanks. (chipset G96, kernel 3.2.0-19-generic)
