About the install directions.
I agree that maybe chmod / file permissions should be interchangeable terms, but when getting to the nitty gritty, that is very dependent on the FTP program. I could tell you how to do it in my client or by telnet, but if you are using cuteftp, smartftp, wsftp or any others, I'd have no clue, and the way it is done can be quite different.
I'm after something to do, so would a write up about File Permissions be of any use ? (I'll make it specific to WP needs and also cover other bits too) ?
Hell, I could do a guide as to how to do the CHMOD / File permissions for the free FTP clients too. :)
