WordPress makes several (IMHO) valid assumptions as part of the setup.
Namely, that you have php, apache, mail, mysql, etc, all set up. Of
course if you don't have these things it will take longer than 5 minutes
to install. However, I really don't think that the 5 minute install
should include instructions as far back in the process of "Determine
which webhost you would like to host with, feel free to purchase a
server and colocate it, or build a server yourself and colocate that.
Click here to determine what hardware needs your site will have, or
click here to skip to step 57 where you actually set up WordPress."
