You're definately right; some of the documentation
needs to be updated, improved, or more generally
geared towards complete newbies.  In all fairness, a
little over a year ago, I was a complete Linux newbie,
and Wine was the first application I ever installed
(compiled from source) and ran on Linux. :)  Of
course, it took some reading of the documentation, and
some educated guessing, but it was possible.

In any case, I don't know who currently maintains the
documentation, but you sound like you have some great
ideas to contribute to it.  I encourage you to get
involved. :)
