You need to show us explicitly what you have tried so far for anyone  
to be able to point out the error of your ways.

At the risk of seeming facetious, I suggest that you obtain the new  
Catalyst book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1430223650 disclaimer:  
I am the primary author), read chapter 5 on deployment, and once you  
understand that you can patch the documentation for the benefit of  
others.  This is how I got started writing docs for Catalyst, because  
I was frustrated that the instructions were not easy and obvious to  
me, and I needed something I knew I could follow.  The book follows  
the same principle, which is why about a third of it is written by  
other people.  Firstly it means I can safely forget what I already  
know and look it up instead, and secondly I can stand on the shoulders  
of people who are taller than me :) and look up what they have to say  
as well.

If you're close to Sydney,  Sydney.pm will be  having a book launch  
(where there is a chance of winning a copy), probably on Tuesday the  
28th of July.  I'll be sure to announce it on this list.
