Great! I wish you much fun :-)

I already incorporated some install issues (and their solution) into the
tutorial.txt of my sandbox repository
(svn.zope.org/Sandbox/ulif/grok-adminui/doc), as well as some sentences
about grok.Forms. This is really unfinished sandbox stuff, but you might
have some use for it.

+1 from me. Especially splitting up could make life easier, when Grok
and its tutorial grow.

What about some kind of FAQ (linked with the tutorial 'core') for topics
like install issues? Those topics can easily grow big.
