( It sounds funny, isn't it? I need How-to for writing How-to )
If I write a howto, I follow these steps:
1) figure out how things work, write down everything you do in form of short key sentences including the commands you used.
2) If everything works as expected, look through your comments and remove parts where you tried out things that did not succeed at the end.
3) Do the setup again by following exactly the steps you have written down to check that your instructions really works. If your howto shall contain screenshots, make these screenshots now.
4) Replace the short key sentences from your notes with a more detailed description that explains what you did in which step and format everything as described in the formatting guide.
