i wouldn't say that "it is too difficult" but more like "it is much more trouble 
to hunt here and there for things that need to be done when one doesn't know 
where to start at all"...

yes, it comes down to making it as simple as possible and we have xerox, apple 
and m$ to thank for that with their "one icon to do a job" goals of dumbing down 
everything so that the lowest common denominator can perform the task at hand...

here's a clue (not that any one here really needs it but)... find yourself a 
computer illiterate person and have them perform the steps necessary for the 
task... they will find all the problems that need to be taken care of ;)
