But this is pure FUD: Any description of the UI. It's effectively impossible to document Linux installation when the first step becomes (a) complicated and (b) vendor specific.
Sorry, but this was the case for ages. To install Linux (or Windows, for that matter) you must boot from floppy or CD/DVD/UMS. Long time ago computers tried floppy first then continued with HDD. Boot viruses exploited this capability quite efficiently and since then the very first step in the process of installation of any OS is (a) complicated and (b) vendor specific. Singed boot does not change anything materially in this regard.
