[Catalyst] "Installing under ..." on the wiki

With all the talk of how tough catalyst can be to install, it seems a
shame that pages like:

  "Installing Catalyst as someone other than root",
  "Installing Catalyst as someone other than root",
  "Installing Catalyst as someone other than root" and
  "Installing Catalyst as someone other than root"

are all 'hidden away' under the link titled "Issues that people have
faced and how they solved them".

I'd like to propose a new section, in Documentation/Getting Started that
deals with installing Catalyst.

It raises the profile of these pages a bit more, and might help other
people find their way.

I'm currently exploring Ubuntu as my potential distro of choice, which
has lead me to explore the joy that it Debian package management. It's
too early to tell, but I've been playing with dh-make-perl and have
progressed to exploring the merits of CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb.
If it leads anywhere I'd like to add my findings to the wiki.
