hmmm ... i think you may have read more into my suggestion than i
intended.  when i suggested describing the effects of running a
pageful of commands, i didn't mean a horrifically-detailed description
of everything that would have happened.

more along the lines of, "once you do all of the above, you should now
see all of your newly-created cross-compile commands in <some
directory name here>."

just something as simple as that might give a beginner the confidence
to believe he did this part right and he can continue on to the next.

just my $0.02.
