Right, the ServiceInstance. Must have missed it, thanks. I
wouldn't be me if I did not complain though - this doc
mentions only 8 cwc2 configuration options, while there are
13 in my (Chameleon 2.4.1) cwc2.xml. As for chameleon.xml,
the online help InstallationGuide mentions 6 options,
whereas my chameleon.xml has 17 of them. Some of these can
be found described in other parts of the documentation (not
sure if all), but it would make sense if they were also
introduced in the main instalation guide - what they are,
why not/edit them, links to other places in the docs where
they are described in their context.

Moreover the InstalationGuide is not up-to-date with current
Chameleon directory structure. And I'm not sure if I adapt
it to the current one properly (well anyway Chameleon is
running, but it would be better to know).

Without such glitches the documentation would be more
usefull for newbies.
