Call me an idealist, but this sounds too much like a "guilty until
proven innocent" thing. I'm a "normal" Gentoo user, and had absolutely
no trouble following the stage1 instructions. Let's leave the "the
user is dumb" assumptions to Microsoft.

Instead, a prominent explamnation and warning about what doing
so-and-so would entail would be good.
