Presently there is much information relevant for the install as a whole hidden away on the manual install section. Also, there is some repeated and some unnecessary information that in my opinion just serves to confuse.

This patch aims to bring common information to the start, then have the two methods where they differ, then have a finishing installation section that is common to both.

I also attach some sample pdfs - please have a look and let me know where it can be improved, what information is missing or inaccurate, etc.
This task depends upon

Hmmm, flyspray doesn't seem to like all the manuals at once, so here is the second batch :)

Some slight changes
Make it clear that the video is only the 5/5.5th gen
Slight grammatical improvement related to itunes.
Rename iTunes to Itunes to be in keeping with the manual's usage of Ipod.

Thanks to linuxstb for spotting these.
