If the wizard requires documentation then it's like the "Help System User's Manual" that nearly became a necessity at a company in a distant galaxy long ago, in a remote corner of the Universe not far from Natick. The HELP software's UI was so convoluted with "levels" you could not get help from it. Any part of the wizard that is confusing is pre-broken.

Other such documentation:
-- Window Crank User's Manual
-- Light Switch Instructions
-- How to Make a Peanut Butter Sandwich
